The realm of St. Stephen : a history of medieval Hungary, 895-1526 by Pál Engel( )

"The Realm of St. Stephen is a comprehensive survey of and a major contribution to the historiography of medieval Eastern and Central Europe. Pal Engel traces the establishment of the medieval kingdom of Hungary from its conquest by the Magyar tribes in 895 until its defeat by the Ottomans at the battle of Mohacs in 1526." "Engel divides the history of medieval Hungary into two broad periods. The originally nomadic Magyar tribes inherited an almost empty land from its former inhabitants - Romans, Huns, Germans and Avars - and absorbed the remaining Slavic peoples into the dominant Magyar culture. The 'national' Magyar kings of this era, the Arpadian dynasty, were replaced at the start of the fourteenth century by rulers from a number of European dynasties - Angevin, Luxemburgian, Hunyadi, and Jagellian. This latter period saw radical changes in political and social structures and in institutions which had previously remained unchanged. These reforms are reflected in the abundant variety of state documents available through Hungary's growing administrative and legal sophistication after the end of the Arpadian age." "Documenting the economic, social, political, cultural and military development of the dominant Magyars, as well as their religious, ethical and dynastic evolution, Pal Engel presents an accessible history of this important area. Andrew Ayton has edited the translation of this seminal text to bring it to a wider British, European and North American readership."--Jacket

Histoire de la Hongrie médiévale by Gyula Kristó( )

Ce second tome de l'histoire de la Hongrie médiévale retrace des moments particulièrement glorieux du royaume magyar : l'apogée du pouvoir monarchique sous deux rois d'origine française, les " Angevins " Charles-Robert et Louis le Grand ; l'union avec le royaume de Bohême sous Sigismond (qui est aussi empereur du Saint-Empire) ; le gouvernement " éclairé " de Mathias, dernier roi " national ". Hélas les difficultés des années 1490- 1520 amènent la défaite catastrophique de Mohacs mais ce livre écrit par trois des meilleurs historiens hongrois montre que la victoire turque n'a pas entraîné une rupture totale avec le passé médiéval. Bien au contraire, c'est au cours des deux derniers siècles du Moyen Âge que se façonne l'identité hongroise : alors que la mise en valeur du vaste territoire hongrois se poursuit (sans connaître une crise comparable à celles des royaumes plus occidentaux) les structures sociales se mettent en place pour longtemps, avec la toute puissance d'une quarantaine de barons formant l'aristocratie, une noblesse moyenne et inférieure nombreuse, une bourgeoisie marchande souvent étrangère, une paysannerie qui perd sa liberté au début du xvie siècle ... Si l'on ajoute que ce royaume, désormais bien intégré dans la Chrétienté latine, connaît un développement rapide de la culture écrite, on comprend que la lecture de ce livre apporte une information essentielle sur cette Europe du Centre-Est trop souvent méconnue
