(Banská Bystrica Chapter as the Place of Authentication in the Light of Preserved Sources in 1780 – 1790)
Abstract: The research subject of the presented study is the activity of the Banská Bystrica Chapter as the place of authentication (locus credibilis) in the first decade of its existence. The authors focus on the establishment conditions of the Chapter as part of the Diocese of Banská Bystrica in 1776 and the subsequent relocation of the Turiec convent place of authentication archives from Kláštor pod Znievom to Banská Bystrica in 1780. Moreover, the authors attempt to reconstruct the activities of a place of authentication, to present the personnel and economic background of the Chapter according to authentic descriptions drawing on the canonical visitations of 1785. Subsequently, they aim to demonstrate the structure and the amount of agenda of the place of authentication in the first decade of its existence according to the hitherto unresearched protocol of the credible place from 1780 – 1795 stored in the archives of the Diocese of Banská Bystrica. Finally, the authors follow the efforts of Emperor Joseph II to gradually centralize the places of authentication archives which, however, were not implemented due to the reasons stated in the study
