Explanation of the Gospels that the Sacred Mother Church Reads and Proclaims Throughout the Year on Sundays and Other Holidays
Az Evangeliomoknac, Mellyeket Vasarnapokon, Es Egyeb Innepeken Esztendö Altal, Az Anyaszentegyhazban oluasni es Praedicallani szoktanac, Magarazattyanac. Masodic Resze : Mely Magaban Foglallya, Hvsvettvl Fogva, Adventig Valo Vasarnapi Evangeliomokat (Explanation of the Gospels that the Sacred Mother Church reads and proclaims throughout the year on Sundays and other holidays) is the second volume of a large multivolume work of sermons in Hungarian by church dignitary and religious writer Mikuláš Telegdy (also seen as Miklós Telegdi, 1535−86). The second volume also contains sermons for Sundays from Easter to Advent. The work was published by Mikuláš Telegdy himself in a press in Trnava (present-day Slovakia), which he founded in 1578. The production of the press was oriented to the needs of the Catholic Church and to the expanding Counterreformation underway at that time. Among the most important centers of printing in Hungary, the press operated until the death of Mikuláš Telegdy. After his death it became the property of Esztergom Chapter, the community of canons associated with the Esztergom Cathedral. (The chapter had moved to Trnava in 1543, after the Turks occupied much of Hungary.) The book features initial letters with ornamental background in framework, a title page with red-black print, direction words, and some handwritten remarks. Biblical references in the sermons are listed in the margins. The Renaissance binding has been restored with simple ornamental and figural blindstamp and has two new clasps.
