(The Changes of the Position of Byzantine Rite Christians in Hungarian Kingdom During the Vlach Colonisation)
Abstract: There are multiple factors that had a certain influence on position of the Byzantine rite Christians in the Hungarian kingdom during the Vlach colonisation (the 14th – 17th centuries). In the paper the author attempts to describe position of Eastern Christians in both ecclesiastical and profane spheres of life, how they were treated by the king, their landlords, the Latin Church officials and eventually the pope himself in a period of time since they were first mentioned in the written sources until the time when a part of the Byzantine rite clergy recognised an act of subordination to the Latin clergy and thus entered a union with the pope. During this process a number of adherents of the Eastern “branch” of Christianity noticeably increased and so did a royal need for their services as the protectors of the borders.
