The dispute over water privilege concerning the parish streams between the parish priests in Pacov (under the auspices of local Carmelite monastery in the same place) and aristocratic owners of the neighbouring manor Kámen lasted for a long time, between 1720 and 1757. It is one of the model examples of the changes in attitude regarding the treatment of legal and administrative cases and the law in general at the turn of the eras of Charles VI. and Maria Theresa. The dispute is well documented and, thanks to various types of sources, provides a large amount of interesting material and background for further research. P. Václav Josef Skokánek, the parish priest of Pacov, is a person of special interest to us as he was significantly involved in the dispute. He could even be called an archetypal figure of the priest living and working at the turn of Baroque and Enlightenment periods.
