The Heidelberg Catechism – a Bestseller

2013. december 30., tags: heidelberg catechism, anniversary, 450

The Heidelberg Catechism, the 450th anniversary of which is celebrated this year, gained immense popularity in Hungary already when it first appeared there. So much so that when Maria Theresa went to great lengths to get it out of circulation, the pastors and the faithful employed cunning tactics to continue spreading the book.

Celebrating the Heidelberg Catechism

2013. november 13., tags: heidelberg catechism, hungarian reformed church (hrc), anniversary, 450

This year marks the 450th anniversary of the Heidelberg Catechism. To celebrate the occasion, the Common Synod of the Hungarian Reformed Church (HRC), made up of the Reformed Church in Hungary alongside other Hungarian Reformed communities in the Carpathian Basin, accepted the new Hungarian translation of the Catechism. The John Calvin publishing house of the RCH printed a special edition of the Catechism, which contains the full text in the languages used in Reformed congregations in the Carpathian Basin: German, English, Romanian, Slovakian and Hungarian. It has been internationally well received since its publication.
