Renaissance humanism was a broad intellectual and cultural movement, which contributed significantly to the development of various scholarly disciplines from theology to the different branches of natural sciences. While the bulk of the research has focused on Western European and Mediterranean cultural practices in the 15th–17th centuries, major figures of Renaissance humanism in some countries of Central Europe (Bohemia, Hungary, Poland, etc.) remain virtually unknown outside this area. Despite some recent monographs on the most significant humanists and courts of the age in Central Europe, there exists no equivalent of the exemplary "Verfasserlexikon" series for these lands. Consequently, the life and works of important intellectuals remain in the shadows, and are not accessible in English-language reference works. This work provides a complete reexamination of the nature and significance of East-Central European humanism in the period 1420–1620 through a thorough study of the humanists’ lives and literary output in a biographical series. This volume present the authors and texts of Renaissance humanism in Hungary in the framework of the multi-volume reference work 'Companion to Humanism in East Central Europe'.
