Str. 31 - 47
This article is based on the archival sources named Capi del Consiglio de’Dieci: Lettere di Rettori e di altre cariche (also known as Consiglio dei Dieci: Lettere Rettori ai Capi), which is consisted of various reports, letters and similar memos of correspondence that
was sent by representatives of the Venetian government (rectors, commanders, counts, captains, castellans, bursars) together with the local civil authorities to the Venetian magistrate Consiglio dei Dieci (i.e. its three-member executive committee known as Capidel
Consiglio dei Dieci). Author investigates information, kept in these archival sources, regarding the Church and clergy from the island of Korčula during the eighteenth century. Namely, author dealt with 13 cases (investigative files) that often embrace many more
additional attachments (documents). These extent documents, covering the unsuitable actions of the local clergy, were sent to the Council of Ten by the local Korčula civil authorities,
and often they reveal problems in the relation between clergy (together with the local bishop) and the community, which frequently led to the legal hearing of clergy before the civil court. Moreover, these documents reveal many details regarding the religious and
political life in the city of Korčula, as well as in some other settlements on the island. Therefore, these documents represent a
valuable source for the research of various historical aspects of the commune and the bishopric of Koručla during the last century of the
early modern period.
