The Hungarian polyhistor Matthias Bel (1684–1749) is an outstanding figure of Slovak and Hungarian culture history. He was one of the promoters and organizers of scientific research in Slovakia. During his work he came into contact with the town of Trnava and its inhabitants. The present study offers an analysis of historical and literary texts proving the connection between Bel and Trnava. Most importantly, in his Notitia Hungariae novae historico-geographica , Tomus II (Vienna 1736) Trnava is described on 100 pages. Further, his correspondence with a town senator and a number of private persons has been preserved. In addition, Schwandtner’s work Scriptores rerum Hungaricarum (1765) was published in Trnava with an introduction by Bel. The analyzed documents prove Bel’s positive, even warm relationship to Trnava and its inhabitants.

The study examines recently found fragments of the Buda Antiphonal. The codex, containing Office chants representing the Esztergom liturgical tradition, was notated at the end of the 15th century with Messine-Hungarian mixed notation. 21 folios, originating from its beginning and preserved at the National Széchényi Library (Budapest), were identified by László Dobszay in 1978. Fragments of the same antiphonal surfaced recently in two collections from Slovakia: 7 folios, with summer and autumn historiae as well as antiphons for Sundays in ordinary time, in the archives of the Saint Adalbert Association (Trnava) and a single truncated folio, with responsories for Christmas Matins, in the music collection of the Slovak National Museum.

This is the sixth part of a series of publications about the history of goldsmith's art in Hungary based on archival sources, registrars, citizens’ registers, guild documents, tax registers processed by cities and regions. The goldsmiths and silversmiths revealed by the above documents by name are compared with the old research literature to rectify its data on the one hand, and on the other, goldsmith's marks and objects are attributed to the particular artists. The present publication reviews the history of goldsmith's art in Nagyszombat (today Trnava, Slovakia), the first part of which – the 15–17th century – was released in Művészettörténeti Értesítő 2009/1. Now the equally rich output of the 18–19th centuries is taken stock of, together with the names of several artists. Some published art works are known from public collections, others from private owners or art dealers.

The epic poem Tyrnavia nascens (Tyrnaviae: Typis academicis 1706) was published in honour of the solemn graduation of the new bachelors of Universitas Tyrnaviensis that took place in 1706. Due to this fact we can say it belongs to a special group of occasional literary works usually published by the professors of the university in honour of the solemn graduations ( gratulationes promotionum ). Its author, Stephanus Csiba SJ celebrated in it foundation of Trnava as well as establishment of Universitas Tyrnaviensis . The traditional topic motifs we meet in the poem show deeper coherence with the traditional ways of composing an epic poem as well as they point out some of the classical models the author had followed. Even though showing a deep respect for the traditional techniques, the work of our poet can be in many ways regarded original.

Abstract  

This article analyses the long term incidence of cancer disease in the vicinity of nuclear power plant at Jaslovské Bohunice. The data on the incidence of cancer were summarized by year and by regional district for men and women separately. The main study region was the district Trnava with the districts Nitra and Levice used as a reference teritory. The actual figures are from 1968 till 1990 with a trend calculated up to the year 2000. Mortality was evaluated from the point of view of the percentage of premature deaths and the potentially lost years of life. This analysis was made for a period from 1980 till 1990 for men and women separately for each municipality in the Tmava district. Neither a higher incidence of cancer nor an accelerated dynamics of cancer formation was found in the vicinity of nuclear power plant. Mortality is therefore uniform within the whole Trnava district and no exceptional situation was found within the regional continuity.
