Summary/Abstract: On the preliminary leaves (Vorsatz) of Milotai Nyilas István's work: A mennyei tudomány szerinti irtóvany (Theological problematics), Debrecen, 1617, there is a manuscript text about the 12 Judaic biblical tribes. The anonymous author speaks about the Jews' guilt in torturing and mocking Jesus Christ and their punishment for their deeds. The text of a popular, apocryphal nature was copied or translated by the Calvinist priest János Szentiványi after 1671. Entitled Memorabile exemplum, it looks like the first in Hungarian language from the series of identical legends with a wide European spreading, in the medieval area. The copy of belongs to the Teleki-Bolyai Library in Târgu-Mureş.
