Earlier a single oblate deanery had belonged to the Monastery of Bakonybél, with the name of Saint Maurus, who had been a student boy and later the Abbot of the Saint Martin Monastery of Pannonhalma, then the bishop of Pécs, in the 11th century.


In summer 2007 the deanery split into two in accordance with the place of residence of the oblates. One group maintaining the name of Saint Maurus live in south-west Hungary in and in the neighbourhood of the city of Pécs. The other oblates, those living in south-east Hungary have founded a deanery under the name of Saint Pachomius.
