The renaissance of Palestrina's music, which in the 19th century was of particular interest to musicians music-lovers in Italy and abroad, was largely influenced by the performance practice given to it by the Cappella Sistina, the despositary of this heritage.
One can establish mutual influences in the Renaissance Hungarian and Polish literatures. The influences are due to the personal contacts of humanist poets and thinkers and due to the experience these people got in Poland and Hungary respectively. The literary interactions are manifested in various phenomena: translations, paraphrases, dedications, poems written on special occasions, and Polish and Hungarian topics.

The years of Ottoman rule served to isolate the Balkan region from the blossoming Renaissance period in Europe, and consequently the culture of this area was deeply affected by Turkish influences. The study gives a survey of thecultural contactsbetween Bulgarians and Serbs during the National Revival. Among the Slavs the period of the National Revival and the epoch of the Enlightenment is appearing tardily compared to other European countries. Among the Southern Slavs it starts in the 18th century. Because of its lateness the process is faster (while in Western Europe the transition from the Middle Ages to Modernity lasted app. 300 to 400 years, the same process among the Southern Slavs takes 100 years). The Bulgarian and Serbian Renaissance is tightly connected with the war of independence and the revolution, the core motivation being national indepedence and not individual freedom.
Az esszé a magyar filozófia utóbbi negyedszázadát tekinti át. Középpontjában a
filozófiai intézményrendszer áll: az MTA Filozófiai Intézet, az egyetemek
filozófiai tanszékei, a Magyar Filozófiai Társaság működését és a filozófiai
könyv- és folyóiratkiadás helyzetét elemzi. Következtetése szerint a korszak a
magyar filozófia reneszánszát hozta el, ugyanakkor azonban ez a reneszánsz az
elmúlt években le is zárult.
In the 15th and 16th centuries secular medieval Latin songs attracted the attention of musicians. Two examples (Vinum bonum et suave, and Potatores exquisiti), in their medieval and renaissance manifestations, highlight the differences of approach to music in the two period. Both are drinking songs but have associations with sacred repertoire; and seem to be connected to monastic culture; and the two seem to have migrated to disparate regions of Europe.
Among the Hungarian and the Polish Renaissance publications dealing with the problems of the two countries, a small number of beautiful prose works can be found as well. They were on various topics, such as religion, love, chivalry, historical and moral guidance. In the Hungarian literature of that time, religious works were in majority. Biernat of Lublin in the Polish literature and Gáspár Heltai in the Hungarian literature created works of stable literary value.

Discussion on methodological problems of corporate survival and solvency prediction is enjoying a renaissance in the era of financial and economic crisis. Within the framework of this article, the most frequently applied bankruptcy prediction methods are competed on a Hungarian corporate database. Model reliability is evaluated by Receiver Operating Characteristic (ROC) curve analysis. The article attempts to answer the question of whether the simultaneous application of data reduction and univariate splitting (or just one of them) improves model performance, and for which methods it is worth applying such transformations.
