VESPRÉMSKY BISKUP PETER BERISLO A VESPRÉMSKA DIECÉZNA SYNODA Z ROKU 1515
(The Bishop of Veszprém Péter Beriszló and Diocesan Synod of Veszprém in 1515)
Abstract: Péter Beriszló (*1475 – †1520) was a prominent church representative who, besides the church sphere, also distinguished himself in political sphere. He used his diplomatic skills, power influence and contacts in the court of Vladislaus II Jagiellon as a diplomat and as a member of the Royal Office and Royal Council. He actively opposed the expansiveness of the Ottoman Empire and took part in the Ottoman-Hungarian wars, which was also fatal to him. Between 1512 and 1520 he was the Bishop of Veszprém. In 1515, as Bishop of Veszprém, he summoned the diocesan synod to Veszprém, where 31 regulations were adopted concerning liturgical discipline and discipline of the clergy. Some regulations were progressive and signalled a Catholic self-reform that was typical after the Council of Trent (1545 – 1563).
