Vizsoly



 

Vizsoly is best known for the Vizsoly Károlyi Bible, the first complete bible to appear in the Hungarian language. It was translated by the Calvinist minister of Gönc, Gáspár Károlyi, and published in 1590.  

The preparatory works associated with the translation of the bible were begun in the former Mágócsy Country-Mansion. On their completion, Zsigmond Rákóczi – the one-time Captain of Eger Castle and later Prince of Transylvania – had the largest printing works of that time in Hungary, installed in the mansion.

On the opposite side of the road to the Mágócsy Country-Mansion is a Gothic church, with a single nave, built at the end of the 12th century; the extension of the church was completed in the 1320’s. A four-storey, square tower, is located in front of its western façade.
