English Summary:

"... The Last Hungarian work to appear on the history of Hungarian culture was a five-volume series series entitled Magyar művelődéstörténet, published in Budapest between 1939 and 1942. Comissioned by the Hungarian Society for History and co-authored by a team of experts under the editorship of Sándor Domanovszky, it offered a survey of the topic from the beginnings up to the early twentieth century, and was a major achievement of historiography in Hungary as well as being a best-seller in its own time.

To acquaint the reader with a cultural past which consists of an unbroken continuum spanning over a thousand years is by no means an easy task; it is certainly beyond the competence of a single author. The major themes vary from one period to another as dominant elements and decisive factors affecting the culture of a particular age change. ..."

László Kósa, editor
