Eszterhazyanum Research Team

Utolsó módosítás: 2016. január 04.

The research team was created in 2014 with the support of Dr. Kálmán Liptai, Rector of Eszterházy Károly University of Applied Sciences, His Excellency Dr. Csaba Ternyák, Archbishop of Eger and Dr. Lajos Dolhai, Rector of the College of Theology, Eger.

The primer goal of the team is to preserve Count Eszterházy Károly's cultural and intellectual legacy by collecting and listing all written sources as well as academic works (books, articles, papers) about the history of the Eszterházy family and coordinating the work of relevant researchers. The team also aims at involving researchers from different disciplines in order to efficiently explore all possible aspects of the Eszterházy era (1762-1799). By following this interdisciplinary logic, researchers intend to extend their usual workshops and organize international conferences, engage young doctoral students and publish papers on the most recent findings.

A long term goal is to write the history of the Eger Diocese by coordinating a regional research including Kismarton-Galánta-Pápa-Tata-Vác-Eger. The Eszterhazyanum has been working on exploring Eszterházy Károly's legacy by studying his cadastral surveys, estate administration, book collection and the biography of his seminarists.
