German, with some entries in Latin (f. 2v, 37r)


Written in Hall in Tirol, Austria, from 1764 to 1784 and 1821 to 1825.
Solbad Hall in Tirol


Account book of an association, or pact, of lay congregants formed to support the holding of Catholic masses in the Jesuitenkirche, or Jesuit Church (Kirche der Gesellschaft Jesu, f. 1r), in Hall in Tirol, Austria, covering the years 1763 to 1784, and 1821 to 1825. The pact members belonged to the Congregation Mariae Verkündigung (congregation of the Annunciation of Mary, f. 1r). The pact is referred to as both the Heiligen Messen Pact (pact for holy masses; f. 1r), and the Marianische Pact (pact of Mary, f. 2r). The book includes a narrative report about the founding and constitution of the pact (Bericht und Satzungen, f. 1r-4r), begun in 1764 and updated in 1768, 1769, 1774, 1775, 1778, and 1822. The report indicates that the pact was initiated in 1763 by 100 congregants who invested 100 gulden each. Approval was sought from the provincial Jesuit official Ignatius Rhombus and from Leopold Winckler, rector of the local Jesuit collegium (Collegij der Gesellschaft Jesu), as well as Bartholomaeo Payer, Patri praesidi (f. 1r). The pact was officially founded in April 1764. The book was regularly used for recording annual income and expenses from May 1763 until August 1784 (f. 11v-37r). The first set of entries (f. 11v-12r) covers a 2-year period, from May 1763 to August 1765. Thereafter the annual accounting begins and ends around 15 August (the Feast of the Assumption of Mary), and a review is noted in September or October. In 1765-1769 the review is indicated only with the formula: in visitatione. In 1770-1782 the accounts are signed by several individuals, with the titles prefect, assistant (sometimes 2), and secretary. Those signing include Joann Nep. Mungenast (f. 18v, 19v), Laurentio Neuner (f. 16v, 18v), Johann Bapt. Philad. Geisenhof (f. 20v, 22v), Joseph Anton Lachmann (f. 22v, 25v), Joseph Lanfer (f. 25v, 26v), Jos. Ant. Mayeff (f. 25v, 26v, 27v), Florian Antoni Griessenböck (f. 28v), Franz Xaver Heigl (f. 33r), and Jos. Seelos (f. 34v). In 1768 Laurentio Neuner was selected as the priest dedicated to saying the masses for the pact (f. 2v), and his name frequently appears thereafter in the records of expenses as pacti Mariani capellano. Income includes interest income and donations from individuals. Expenses usually relate to masses held on a regular basis, or for masses in honor of individuals, often deceased (crosses next to names, f. 19r). The financial entries for the period 1821 to 1825 (f. 37r) are entirely in Latin, and all in the same hand; they are in the form of a brief narrative, except for the 1825 entry, which simply gives a single figure each for income, expenses and remaining balance. A note in the same hand (f. 36v) indicates that the circumstances of the record keeping from 1784 to 1794 was unknown, but that from 1794 to 1807 the records were kept in the general account book of the congregation (Congregationsbuch), and in 1807, the prefect at the time, Alois Schwarzhofer, engaged Johan Kleubenschedl to do the record keeping for a fee. The addendum to the association constitution dated 1821 (f. 4r) appears also to be in the same hand, and is signed by the current prefect (Thomas Neumayr Mussia ; f. 4r); it conveys a decision that henceforth 2 masses will be said upon the death of a pact member.
