České bible a české biblické texty ve sbírkách maďarské Národní knihovny

Czech Bibles and Czech biblical texts in collections at the Hungarian National Library 

Abstract: The Czech Bible and use of Czech biblical texts in the Hungarian lands has a long and rich cultural tradition in both Catholic and Protestant milieux. The study presents the inspiring cultural role played by the Czech bible in the Hungarian lands from the 17th century in the light of Czech biblical texts that can be found in the collections at the Hungarian National Library (Országos Széchenyi Könyvtár – OSZK). Czech biblical texts at OSZK come from the collection of György Ribay, which the library bought on the initiative of Ferenc Széchenyi, the founder of the national library, and the republication of Czech biblical texts brought out in the Hungarian lands, as Czech bibles and biblical texts were used until the 20th century in the Slovak Lutheran environment.
