On the Issue of the Nobility in Trnava in the 17th and 18th CenturiesK problematike aristokracie v Trnave v 17. a v 18. storočí

Duchoňová, Diana

The case study attempts to review older opinions on the mostly negative impact of the nobility settling down in Hungarian towns. On the example of the free royal city of Trnava (Nagyszombat, Tyrnau), the author analyses the political and economic activities and the lifestyle of the nobility. By the 17th century the towns became temporary or permanent places of residence of the nobility, places where they received education, held official functions, spent their free time, acquired luxurious or precious goods and, last but not least, it was a place where they presented themselves.

The Nobility in Little Carpathian Towns in Early Modern History (16th-18th centuries)

Duchoň, Michal

The study deals with the issue of the presence of nobles in three towns – Modra (Modor, Modern, Modorinum), Pezinok (Bazin, Bösing, Bazinium) Svätý Jur (Szentgyörgy, Sankt Georgen, Sanctus Georgius) – located under the slopes of the Little Carpathians mountain range. The author studies the motivations that caused the members of the middle and lower Hungarian nobility settle down in towns, as well as the reactions of the town and municipality to this trend.
