Title in the Language of the Records

Deutschland, Sachsen, Freiberg Leichenpredigten,

Record Description

This collection will include records from 1614 to 1661.

This collection includes funeral sermons (leichenpredigten) housed in the Andreas-Möller Bibliothek in Freiberg, Saxony, Germany. These sermons were generally prepared and given by ministers at the grave site for the wealthier and some middle class people. They usually contain information such as names, dates, places, relatives, life histories, and sometimes pedigrees for many generations. The information is subject to error as it was reported by relatives who did not always remember facts accurately. Sermons (talks) were written to honor a dead person and were adapted to the family and social context; it contains a vita, also called curriculum vitae (personalschriften), meaning a brief biographical sketch. Sermons were printed privately and distributed to commemorate the deceased person. These sermons  are handwritten in German.

For a list of volume numbers currently published in this collection, select the Browse link from the collection landing page.
