Abstract: Straipsnyje analizuojamas Šunskų parapijos 1936 m. inventoriaus aprašas. Šis dokumentas buvo paskutinis išsamus dokumentas, nes vėliau prasidėjusi okupacija sutrukdė įprastą pastoracinį ir administracinį parapijos darbą. Parapijos inventorius atskleidžia ne tik materialinę šios katalikiškos bendruomenės būklę, bet iš dalies ir religinę situaciją. Atlikti išsamesnę inventoriaus aprašo analizę trukdė tai, kad sovietinė valdžia konfiskavo parapijos archyvus ir daugelis duomenų negrįžtamai dingo
It is quite difficult to reconstruct the history of Šunskai parish up to 1947. However, some of the historical facts of the parish are already found in the archives of the Diocese of Vilkaviškis. The first church in unskai was built in 1795. The documents were collected and kept not only in the parish archive, but also in Vygriai, then Seinai diocesan curia. After the Bishop Antanas Karosas’ exile from Seinai in1919, Lithuania had launched a new parish file. The previous was left in Seinai, and later, after the establishment of Lomża diocese, it was transferred there. Currently Šunskai parish file is stored in Lomża Diocese archives, which dates back to the beginning of 1795 and ends in 1914. This article analyses the last pre-war 1936 inventory document as it represents the best the situation of the parish. In unskai parish inventory documents we find information not only about material goods, but, as it is usual in such documents, more detailed situation of the parish is reflected, such as schools, number of students, indulgences, ways of liturgical worship, and so on. Inventory primarily provides data on the church itself, its exterior (the churchyard) and interior objects, cap altars and pictures. The liturgical church clothes, liturgical vessels and other accessories are referred to among the inventory. Inventory provides knowledge about the parish houses, land, the parish cemetery and archive. The 1936 inventory list can provide an indirect insight on the religious situation of the parish. It is evident by the quantity of the inventory and the nature of paintings in the altars that people were worshiping saints. Therefore, this document may be called not only an inventory paper but a description of the situation of the parish. This inventory was compiled in the parish while Bishop Mečislovas Reinys, Vilkaviškis bishop coadjutor was on his visit there
