Chapter Summary

The Bergen bishopric, which included the city of Bergen and several outlying parishes, is equipped with clerical probate records covering the period 1685-1714. The Bergen clerical probate records comprise twenty-eight inventories, and given the overall number of servants to the church residing in the area during this period, the number of recorded inventories is relatively small: This, however, is a general feature of all probate records. Lucoppidan left a collection amounting to slightly more than 200 books of different sizes (folio, quarto etc.). As expected, most of these books are of theological character, and a large number of them are written by German Lutheran theologians, by birth or by professional life. Overall, the various book collections belonging to parsons serving in the bishopric of Bergen were marked by a high level of internationality.

Keywords: Bergen bishopric; German Lutheran theologians; Lucoppidan; parsons
