Summary:Due to the historical conditions of the Southern Transdanubian region, we have very little data concerning the medieval iconography and cult of the Holy Trinity. Following the Turkish occupation, the religious life enlivened thanks to the settlements in the 18th century and the pastoral work of the monastic orders. The ecclesiastic and secular landowners generally hired professional sculptors to erect Holy Trinity columns in the centre of their domains and in the bigger settlements. Following their example in smaller settlements, the village community and individuals also erected similar votive memorials. These variants were made by stone carvers from the neighbourhood. The village craftsmen, in many cases, enriched their environment and the sacral landscape with naive suggestivity and original ideas. In this region, the representations of the Holy Trinity reflect partly the influence of the Keszthely „school of stone carving" partly that of the stone carver workshops of Mecsek region. In the 18lh century, Márton Padányi Bíró played a significant part in spreading the veneration of the Holy Trinity. The numerous public memorials and chapels helped the cult of Holy Trinity in spreading even more widely.
