Abstract:
Manuscript on parchment. The Obituary was organized in the early 16th century, obits being transcribed from a 15th-century manuscript recording the deaths of members and benefactors; the majority of the obits were entered subsequently, at the time of the decease of the persons involved. Includes a sealed transcription of a charter, granted by Joseph Bergaigne, Provincial of the Franciscan Order, dealing with the lightening of the obligations incurred towards the benefactors and drawn up in the Convent of Poor Clares at Trier, Jan. 1618, and confirmation of that charter drawn up at Trier, 16 May 1725. Its patronym "Sta. Maria Magdalena" is mentioned in one of the printed documents kept together with the manuscript.
