Cultural contacts between Hungary and England go back to the second half of the sixteenth century, a time when visitors' interests and preoccupations already varied considerably. As Protestant clergymen or theologians, Hungarians studied in Wittenberg and Heidelberg and arrived in England via Leiden. Their peregrinations included London, Oxford, and Cambridge, either visiting for shorter periods or more extensively, taking degrees. As a result of their endeavours, on their return to Hungary, a number of significant religious works were translated into Hungarian. Hungarian authors were published in England from as early as 1593, but the contribution of Hungarian visitors to English culture until the nineteenth century was very small indeed.
