PEREONSKÍ MNÍSI A PANÓNSKE MISIE NA PRELOME TISÍCROČÍ
(Monks from Pereon and the Pannonian Missions at the Turn of Millennium)
Abstract: The following study is a contribution, which pertains the issue of Christianisation of the medieval Kingdom of Hungary. The study is focused on the activities of missionaries, who came from the monastery of Pereo to Pannonia during the early years of the reign of king Stephen. One of the objectives of the study is to present the prevailing views on missionary activities in this area. The study also brings insights into the ideological and political context, which influenced the directions of these missions. Author of the study deals with the question of how missionary activities were affected by monastic reforms, that took place in the monastery of Pereo. This monastery was a religious institution, in which syncretism of the Eastern and Benedictine monastic elements spread. At the same time, it represented a foundation for the missionary activities of its monks in the Central European area. The study also tries to fill the gap in the primary sources by introducing a significant analogy, which was the mission of the monks from Pereo in Polish „Sclavinia“.
