LIST PÁPEŽOVI INOCENTOVI X. Z ROKU 1652 VO SVETLE FAKTOV
(A Letter to Pope Innocent X of 1652 in the Light of Facts)
Abstract: The document and the text of the loyalty oath of the presbyters also known as the Uzhhorod Union Document had been unknown until 2016. The event itself and also the operational model were derived from similar procedures abroad. This lack of knowledge often caused various adjustments and analogical reasoning. The act of oath was explained in the context of a falsum dated to the end of Francis II Rákóczi’s uprising, which mentions the act for the first time. This falsum is believed to be written in 1652 and it had been based on preserved information about the act. The model of the event which is still accepted today is 310 years old and derives from the interests of the Eger suffragans of the Greek Rite. The aim of this contribution is to analyse the letter to Pope Innocent X of 1652, which is supposed to be a falsum created on the basis of preserved information about the act and which responds to the situation in Hungary after the uprising of Francis II Rákóczi.
