Historical Records | Mdina Cathedral Museum Archives

Historical Records

The second group comprises various historical records, mainly transcripts from notarial and episcopal archives as well as small collections of manuscripts recovered from dispersed archives and donated to the Cathedral. It has seven sections, with one section – entitled Miscellanea – being continually updated with new acquisitions. The earliest transcribed documents in this group date back to the 14th century. This group includes collections from various entities that for unknown reasons have found their place as part of the Cathedral Archives. A recent addition to this group is a collection of 473 parchments that lay dispersed and unclassified but are now being professionally catalogued by Prof. Stanley Fiorini. Another addition is a collection of no less than 4300 Lettere Consolari addressed in the late 18th century to the French Consul in Malta.
