Research Areas

I am specialized in the history of medieval art and architecture. At the Institute I had the opportunity to coordinate major exhibitions about different periods of medieval art in Hungary, to edit and write catalogues, source publications and a manual of Gothic art in Hungary between 1300-1470. I have written a thesis for the degree of a Cand.Sc. in 1977 on the history of Early Gothic in Hungary on the basis of the building history of Esztergom Cathedral and Royal Palace. My thesis for the Dr.Sc. was written in 1990 on special features of Hungarian mentality and aesthetic thought as revealed by works of art of the 14th and 15th centuries.
