DIECEZJA WIGIERSKA I JEJ DZIEDZICTWO HISTORYCZNO-PASTORALNE
THE WIGRY DIOCESE AND ITS HISTORICAL-PASTORAL HERITAGE
Languages of publication
Erected after the third partition of Poland Wigry diocese existed less than 20 years (1799-1818). Her shepherds were in turn: bishop Michał Franciszek Karpowicz and bishop Jan Klemens Golaszewski. The episcopal capital was the town of Wigry, which since the erection of the diocese constituted the seat of the Camaldolese monastery. The article presents historical-political and ec-clesial conditions concerning the lands of the future Wigry Diocese. It de-scribes the erection of the diocese itself and the process of forming its organi-zational structures. This article shows the silhouettes of the bishops and the historical-pastoral heritage of the Wigry Diocese.
