Description
Summary:The Reformed pastor István Czeglédi (1620?-1671) was the inheritor of Péter Alvinczi in the congregation of Kassa and concerning the spiritual traditions he was the heir of Pál Medgyesi. He was not only a combative theologist, but the author of several polemical writings and the organiser of a congregation as well. Beside the self-sacrificing work for the community he was an outstanding father, too. His own son, together with his foster-son paid tribute to him by publishing his most significant work posthumously. This volume may be considered as a remarkable one as it contains the detailed biography of Czeglédi along with a bunch of funeral and laudatory verses. Our intention is to compare the farewell speeches put in verse by the deceased notability's sons, the ones by Pál Czeglédi and by Sámuel Köleséri Snr, also analysing the family relationships and Czeglédi's paternal role. In the second part of this study we are examining the Czeglédi biography written by Köleséri paying special attention to its extraordinary details. Through analysing the texts destined to cherish the memories of Czeglédi we are trying to throw light upon those moments of his life which made the career of the famous pastor of Kassa an example worth following.
