Full Description

Sárospatak, a peaceful little town in north-eastern Hungary, holds legendary status within the country’s cultural landscape. Its school, the Reformed Church College of Sárospatak, has trained several important writers, artists and politicians across the Central-European region’s 500-year history. This volume presents the institution’s history through the lens of 37 books, documents and items from the collection. What was life like for a 17th century Hungarian student? Which physical experiments were pioneering? Why did Béla Bartók want to enrol his son in a countryside secondary school? These are only a few of the questions raised by the authors that introduce the reader to the colourful traditions of this remarkable school.
