Conference and book presentation in Vasvár

A conference was organised on 16 May 2019 in Vasvár, the place where the Fraknói Summer Academy have taken place last summer. On the occasion of the 800th year anniversary of the Vasvár collegiate's deed – which first mentions the surrounding settlements and originates from 1217 – the members of the current chapter were also present at the event.

Terézia Horváth, assistant research fellow of the Fraknói Research Group held a lecture on the conditions of the Vasvár collegiate institutional origins and gave insight into the early history of the office. She also examined the members of the collegiate from the 13th century and its activity as a place of document authentication.

Balázs Tangl talked about the history of the collection kept in the chapter's archives, and Zsombor Györffy-Villám presented the current results of the archaeological excavations, which have been taken place at the locations of the chapter-church two years ago.

The book Vasvári káptalan – Vasi települések. 1217–2017 (Chapter of Vasvár – Settlements of the county Vas. 1217–2017) was presented and praised by Miklós Melega.
