Liber decimationis

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Liber decimationis (German: Tithe Book) of the Diocese of Constance is an official book created in Latin for the purpose of collecting a papal crusade tithe in 1275 , which gives a largely complete overview of the parishes and monasteries of the diocese that existed at that time. It lies only in one under Bishop Rudolf III. from Montfort (1322–1334) prepared copy.

Very many southwest German and Swiss communities are mentioned for the first time in the Liber decimationis . Until 2001 one had to consult the old edition of Wendelin Haid Liber decimationis cleri Constanciensis pro Papa de anno 1275 in the Freiburg Diocesan Archive 1 (1865).
