Summary/Abstract: This paper offers a critical overview of results of late or current researches about the male friaries of the Mendicant Orders in Transylvania during the Middle Ages (13th – 16th c.) from five angles that have been recently explored mainly by French, Italian, German and English medievalists: 1) the geography and topography of the Mendicant friaries of Transylvania, 2) the material running and economy of these friaries, 3) their influence on society and lay piety, 4) the impact of the Observance-trend, 5) the use and signification of images. Finally, it raises the issue of the hypothetical “Transylvanian exception”.
