Summary/Abstract: On the territory of the developing Transylvanian principality there were three ecclesiastical institutions which took part in the issuance of authentic charters: the Chapter of Transylvania residing in Gyulafehérvár, the Convent of Kolozsmonostor and the Chapter of Várad. Their medieval history has been already partially studied, but in neither of these cases the research did not cover their activity during the Transylvanian Principality. Only in the case of Várad we could refer to the lack of sources because, after the capture of the fortress, the Chapter’s archives perished, but even so someone could attempt, on the basis of the issued charters , to reconstruct its activity. This study focuses on the history of the Chapters from Várad and their activity as places of authentication during the time of the Transylvanian Principality. The paper presents the personal of the Chapter from Várad, the so-called “requisitors” and analyzes their activity.
