Lemma 48.24.6. The property $\mathcal{P}(S) =$“$S$ is Gorenstein” is local in the syntomic topology.

**Proof.**
Let $\{ S_ i \to S\} $ be a syntomic covering. The scheme $S$ is locally Noetherian if and only if each $S_ i$ is Noetherian, see Descent, Lemma 35.13.1. Thus we may now assume $S$ and $S_ i$ are locally Noetherian. If $S$ is Gorenstein, then each $S_ i$ is Gorenstein by Lemma 48.24.5. Conversely, if each $S_ i$ is Gorenstein, then for each point $s \in S$ we can pick $i$ and $t \in S_ i$ mapping to $s$. Then $\mathcal{O}_{S, s} \to \mathcal{O}_{S_ i, t}$ is a flat local ring homomorphism with $\mathcal{O}_{S_ i, t}$ Gorenstein. Hence $\mathcal{O}_{S, s}$ is Gorenstein by Dualizing Complexes, Lemma 47.21.8.
