Abstract

La rendición de cuentas por los monasterios de las distintas órdenes religiosas constituye uno de los aspectos relevantes de la contabilidad monástica, por cuanto el análisis de los sistemas contables desarrollados por estas instituciones, a lo largo de su dilatada historia, pone de manifiesto una clara correlación entre las exigencias informativas inherentes a los mismos y el objetivo de control por parte de un órgano de gobierno de carácter superior. En este trabajo se analiza el alcance y evolución de la normativa relativa a la supervisión y control de las cuentas en la Congregación del Cister de Castilla a lo largo del periodo cronológico que marca el final del Antiguo Régimen. The rendering of accounts by monasteries of different religious orders constitutes one of the most relevant features of monastic accounting. The analysis of accounting systems developed by these institutions throughout their history shows a clear relationship between the informative demands they had and the objective to control a superior organ had. In this paper we will analyse the reach and evolution of the regulation related to the supervision and control of accounts in the Cistercian Order in Castile throughout the chronological period which marks the end of the Old Regime.
