Languages of publication
The present article contains an edition of selected documents relating to the dissolution of the Bernardine Monastery in Toruń, to be found in the Kwidzyń Region (Regierung Marienwerder) fonds kept in the State Archives in Gdańsk. The documents come from a bound volume of records entitled Property of the Bernardine Monastery in Toruń 1817 (Das Vermögen des Bernhardiner=Klösters in Thorn 1817). The edition in question comprises the entire archival unit made up of an inventory taking report and the inventory of the monastery’s property itself. The latter consists of four parts, presented in a table: 1 – sum total of the monastery’s assets, divided into immovable property and invested capital, and liabilities; 2 – the monastery’s other income from immovable property, invested capital and rents, as well as income in kind; 3 – detailed description of the church furnishings; 4 – list of the monastery’s tools, crockery and kitchen vessels. The source presented in the article provides an insight into the condition of the monastic household and furnishing of the church a few years before its dissolution.
