József Tóth: Christian and Jewish Houses of Prayer in Hungary

József Tóth: Christian and Jewish Houses of Prayer in Hungary. "...Book of Hungarian Medieval Churches. It is an exciting and demanding task to discover and describe the merits of constructed heritage produced in the Hungarian historical past. The creators of the book have chosen 61 medieval churches and chapels from the photographic material of trips all over the country throughout 20 years. In addition to their architectural excellence these buildings offer outstanding visual experience as well. The pictures are accompanied by concise architectural and historical descriptions. Besides the most beautiful, widely-known buildings special interest has been paid to including churches which strike even narrow professional circles as new. Synagogues in Hungary. The album recalls the relics of the great age of synagogue-building in Hungary, tracing the development of styles in the most outstanding architectural pieces of work in this field. It fills a gap of more than two decades, since the former book with a general view of Hungarian synagogues was published."
