Chapter Summary

The remaining ten inventories registered in the Bergen bishopric probate records were made of households that may be said to belong to the lesser clergy, namely to non-parsons. This implies that the deceased officially formed part of the clergy, but that they functioned during their lifetime in positions such as teachers or curates. Of the book collections examined in this chapter, one belonged to a parish clerk (Andreas Eckhov), three belonged to curates (Jens JonJonassøn Jonas Ottesen Schroder, Jørgen Pedersøn), two belonged to teachers (Lenert Grøtker,Hans Ottesen Schrøder) and two to clerical widows (Margrethe Natheide, Dorthe Engelbretsdatter). Two additional book collections also supposedly belonged to clerics, but the author have not been able to identify their owners’ professions; this concerns the book collections belonging to Johan Ovesen Schrøder and Niels Nielsen.

Keywords: Bergen bishopric clergy; curates; non-parsons; parish clerk
