Languages of publication
The Archdiocesan Archives in Poznań holds a very interesting and hitherto unexplored bound volume of records entitled Monasteries Register 1817–25. It contains information about inspections in the Grand Duchy of Poznań from 1817–1825 as well as some inspections from 1809–1810 in monasteries of the Diocese of Poznań. The inspections encompassed 16 monasteries: of the Benedictines in Lubiń; Bernardine Fathers in Grodzisk, Koźmin, Sieraków and Wschowa; Cistercians in Bledzew, Obra and Paradyż; Cistercian Nuns in Owińska; Dominicans in Wronki; Franciscans in Oborniki and Śrem; Franciscan Nuns (Poor Clares) in Śrem; and the Reformati in Miejska Górka (Goruszki), Rawicz and Woźniki. The records contain inventories of church and monastery furnishings, including library lists (all items or by shelf), and information about valuation (primarily in the German documents). The table included in the article contains the following: 1. leaf no. (unnumbered); 2. date and place of inspection or place from which a letter was sent to the General Consistory of the Poznań Archbishopric; 3. location of the inspected monastery and name of the religious order; 4. language of the document; 5. title given by the inspecting authority. Additional information is provided in square brackets. Wherever possible, the author gives the names and surnames as well as functions of the monks and nuns residing in each monastery during the inspection. Surnames as well as names sometimes have different forms; sometimes, too, the monks and nuns themselves used different signatures during the one inspection. Equivocal cases are marked by question marks [?].
