Are the Swedish Parish Examination Records a Unique Phenomenon?
Interchange: A Quarterly Review of Education, v34 n2-3 p179-189 Jun 2003
This paper introduces the possibility of comparing Hungarian parish records to Swedish Parish Examination Records from an educational point of view. The focus is on a presentation of one particular document of a Hungarian Catholic priest in a small village from the early 19th century. The record keeps track of the reading and writing skills of parishioners. This pilot study aims to show that there might be similarities explored between the unique Swedish parish examination records of the Lutheran congregation and the Hungarian Catholic church archive sources, pointing out the common roots of the Christian teaching all across Europe.
