XXXIII. Inasmuch as during . . . the last troubles in many parts of the Austrian territory the ecclesiastical tithe has been abolished by the civil law, and as . . . it is impossible to re-establish it . . ., His Holiness . . . declares . . . that whilst reserving the right intact to levy the tithe where it still de facto exists, there shall be granted by the imperial government in other places, instead of the said tithe and as compensation for the same, to . . . every one who had the right of demanding tithe, a corresponding charge upon real property, or one upon the public debt of the state. . . .
