Printer-friendly versionPDF version


A meeting of Austrian and Hungarian researchers entitled “Corvinas of Vienna” was held in Vienna at the Collegium Hungaricum on 18 and 19 November 2021. The programme – in which our colleague Edina Zsupán represented our institution – was co-organised by the National Széchényi Library, the Österreichische Nationalbibliothek and the Collegium Hungaricum in Vienna.

The conference was a significant milestone in the joint project of the NSZL and the ÖNB to study the corvinas treasures in Austria.

Among the speakers from Hungary were Edina Zsupán from the HAS-NSZL Res Libraria Hungariae Research Group, Marianne Rozsondai from the HAS Library and Information Centre, Dániel Pócs from the Institute of Art History of ELTE Faculty of Humanities, and István Monok, former Director General of the NSZL and current Director General of the HAS Library and Information Centre.

The professional debates that followed the lectures were attended by some of the most eminent experts on the subject from both Austria and Hungary, and the audience included – in addition to numerous art historians, codicologists, palaeographers and philologists – staff from the partner institutions in Vienna.

The next day of the workshop, in the reading room of the Manuscript Collection of the Österreichische Nationalbibliothek, the participants of the meeting had the opportunity to view the codices that were discussed in the presentations.
