Description:Germania Sacra is a series of volumes intended to offer a historical/statistical description of the “Church in Germany under the Holy Roman Empire” by presenting source material from archives and libraries related to German dioceses, cathedral chapters, monasteries, parishes, etc. up to the time of their dissolution during the Reformation or through secularization (i.e. roughly up to the early nineteenth century). The publications of the Germania Sacra project are arranged according to the borders of ecclesiastical provinces and dioceses established by the year 1500. In every bishopric the institutions of the dioceses (e.g. bishops, cathedral chapter, secular chapter, monasteries and parishes) are collected separately. Every institution is described in relation to general history, regional history, Church history and religious order history. Pius Library receives the print volumes as they published; volumes do not become available online until three years after publication.
Print Equivalent:Pius Library receives all print volumes of this series
