Protestant Theological Institute of Cluj-Napoca

The Work of the Teachers of the Protestant Theological Institute in the Reformed Review (Református Szemle) Journal before and after the Second Vienna Award


The Second Vienna Award brought a positive turn for the Hungarians living in Northern Transylvania, which was also reflected in the academic life. In our study, we examine the impact of the return to the motherland on the work of theological teachers. Református Szemle was one of the most important press organs of Transylvanian Reformed Church, and we will examine the writings, editorials and articles published there. The articles of the year 1940 are examined in more detail.

After the change of power. The Faculty of Reformed Theology in Cluj and the Second Vienna Award


In our study, we examined a significant change of administration and power: what was the impact of the Second Vienna Award of 30 August 1940 on the Faculty of Theology of the Transylvanian Reformed Church in Cluj/Kolozsvár? This historical turn of events was not only a cause for joy, but also a major change and challenge for theological education.
