5th Fraknói Workshop this time in Győr

On 12 September, 2023, Péter Tusor gave the 5th Fraknói Workshop Lecture entitled "An Alternative Interpretation of the Árpás Altarpiece" at the Diocesan Collection Centre in Győr. On this occasion he presented for the first time in detail his research on this unique and enigmatic work of 17th century Hungarian history and art history. The reason of the lecture was the opening of the exhibition "Salve Regina. Virgin Mary in the Work of Redemption". Among the works of art on display is an altarpiece preserved in Mórichida and Árpás from the mid-18th century until 2000, which is rarely exhibited. The exhibition was opened by András Veres, Bishop of Győr and Grand Chancellor of the University of Péter Pázmány Catholic University. The exhibition was organised by Gábor Nemes, Head of the Győr Diocesan Collection Centre and Senior Research Fellow of the Fraknói Research Group. His opening speech can be read here.
