The Bible of Vizsoly

Short description:

Gáspár Károli, a Calvinist pastor was a superintendent of Kassavölgy Diocese. He translated and published the first Bible to Hungarian in 1590, which made the name of his settlement known beyond the borders of the country. Gáspár Károli not only translated but also maintained, edited and published the Bible in Hungarian. The language of this Bible contributed a great deal to the development, shaping, dissemination and formulation of the Hungarian culture and language, and has remained a definite and valuable event in the history of the Hungarian nation in its spirit and as an object. The 425-year-old publication has an immense cultural, religious and historical linguistic value.
