(Flash flood in Sobotište (1672) in the Matthias Bel ´s Notitia of the Nitra County and other written sources)

Abstract: The paper deals with the reconstruction of climatic and hydrological aspects of the flash flood in Sobotište in 1678 in terms of historical geography. The weather conditions and consequences (especially damage) caused by this natural disaster were outlined by M. Bel in paragraph IX. CHVOYNITZE (slov. Chvojnica), § V. Natural History of the General Part of the Knowledge of the Nitra County (1742). More detailed information about the given flood is provided by transcripts of anabaptist codes by J. Beck (1883), family historiography by D. Krman jr. (1708) and monograph and paper written by Ľ. Pauliny (1888, 1891). We obtained further data and parallels to the issue from the literature, data from the Slovak Hydrometeorological Institute and old maps.
