    Abstract: Žigmund Stojka is among the important bishops of Hungary in the 18th century. The article deals with the period 1729 – 1733, when he was the parish priest of Košice. His work in Košice is marked by a dispute with the city municipality. In 1730, Stojka wrote a nine-point complaint to the municipality, in which he attacked the illegal situation that prevailed in the Košice parish. Under his predecessors, the city established the function of a church inspector, to whom it entrusted the management of the income and expenses of the parish church, which the parish priest, as the rector of the church, did not have the opportunity to examine. The city thereby excluded him from all management of the temporal affairs of the parish and left him only the service of masses and the administration of the sacraments, which was contrary to both canonical and secular law. The investigation of this complaint was entrusted to the Imperial-Royal Commission. We learn what conclusions were reached from a document from 1755, when the Košice parish priest at the time filed a similar complaint as Stojka at the time. He referred to the conclusions of the Imperial-Royal Commission, according to which the church treasury should have two locks, the key of one should be held by the inspector and the other by the parish priest. This complaint was upheld in full.
