Szépművészeti Múzeum[edit]

Would anyone in Budapest be able to help with any historical documents related to the Szépművészeti Múzeum please? It's about an exhibit of theirs, see Talk:Rearing Horse and Mounted Warrior#sources Soviet destruction. The Kovács source talks about the piece and other works of art during WW2, but not in great detail. She does however cite other sources, but they probably haven't gone very far from Hungary. --Felcotiya (talk) 17:26, 13 April 2017 (UTC)


Why isn't there an English-language article about the protests in Hungary that have been going for the past several weeks? Charles Essie (talk) 18:31, 2 May 2017 (UTC)

See Central European University#Amendment to Act CCIV of 2011 on National Higher Education in the Hungarian Parliament (2017). --Norden1990 (talk) 19:17, 2 May 2017 (UTC)
It should have a separate article though. Especially since the protests are evolving beyond just this one issue.[1][2] Charles Essie (talk) 15:04, 3 May 2017 (UTC)

Peer review: Edict of Torda[edit]

Bánffy vs. Bánfi[edit]

There were two notable aristocrat families in the Kingdom of Hungary which bore the Bánffy (or Bánfi) surname ("bánfi" = lit. "son of a Ban"). For standardization and avoiding confusion, I would like to note that I will use the name versions:

  • Bánfi de Alsólendva, descendants of the gens Hahót, for the mostly medieval noble family (ext. 1644), as Hungarian medievalists prefer current phonetic spelling.
  • Bánffy de Losoncz, descendants of the gens Tomaj through the Losonci family, in Medieval Hungary they were largely marginal, the family reached its peak by the 18-19th century (governors, ministers, house speakers and a Prime Minister).
