inventory of church property

(Latin: inventarium, list)

A detailed and accurate account of church property. All clerical administrators should in the beginning of their office draw up this document in which all goods should be accurately described and their value noted. If there be more than one administrator, all must sign it. Administrators should not accept an inventory already made unless a description of the goods lost or acquired in the meantime has been included in the document. A copy of this inventory must be kept in the local archives and another in the archives of the diocesan curia and any change in the property should be noted.
