pr. Roman Majka, Specifi c Types of Documentation along with Archival Aids in Selected Archives
of Religious Congregations. Congregational archives, or in a wider sense, church archives, have
the form of structured organizational units, with their own names, abbreviations, year of establishment,
archival resources and aids.
The organisation of internal and external archival activity, including that related to the apostolic
works of religious congregations, is characterized by the type of documentation produced, e.g. minutes
from the meetings of collegial bodies, books of living and deceased professed members. Documentation
concerning the legal basis of the congregations’ operations, such as decrees establishing
religious houses, is included in the archive as well. The archival documentation is characterized by
various structures, e.g. schematic in type or of a primary nature (chancellery, registrar offi ce).
Traditional archival aids are used for processing the documentation, such as sheet- and bookbased
inventory. Some modern archival aids are taken advantage of as well, e.g. FOPAR and ISAD
(G), i.e. the Polish and international archival description standards, respectively. The processing of
archival resources of religious congregations generates a number of advantages for the congregations
themselves, and allows the archives to be made available to a wide range of users.
