Description
Summary:Putnok is a small town in Borsod-Abaúj-Zemplén County close to the Hungarian-Slovak border in what was once Gömör County. The inhabitants were originally Roman Catholics, the Putnok Catholic church was one of the earliest Catholic churches in Gömör County. During the Reformation the entire population converted to the Calvinist faith some time around the 1550s. From the mid-19lh century to the Second World War the Jewish congregation played an important part in the life of the town, but after that the size of the community was substantially reduced and in 1962 it officially ceased to exist. Nowadays, in addition to the two denominations mentioned, there are also Lutherans and Greek Catholics in the town, and two small churches (Jehovah's Witnesses, New Testament Congregation) have also taken root here. The article presents the history and present activity of all these denominations.
