Summary/Abstract: The preparation of the volume: The History of the Reformed Church College in Sárospatak (2013) was motivated by nothing less than transition. Transition in history, in the society, in the life of a certain institution, in the education. The goal of the authors was not to include every scientific achievement in the field, nor the critical examination of the literature and the clarification of the debated cases. They aimed to prepare a popular scientific book for a broader cycle, a monographic work, which does not answer every question, but at least clarifies, what are the shortcomings still requiring several years of studying. The first part of the volume - from the beginnings until 1777 - is written by Dénes Dienes, the second is by János Ugrai. The central message of the volume is the miracle, that such a region, having a significant amount of disadvantage, was able to remain a cultural center, thanks to the spirit of the place, the eminent personalities, the vivid student life, the believe and trust in God in every circumstances, and the steadiness. The intellectuals studying and teaching here inherited the strategies of survival, the successful fight with the vicissitudes, the respect of traditions and the openness to the novelties from generation to generation.
