Summary/Abstract: The reformed church was connected to the Renaissance in Hungary. The liturgical objects usually did not differ from the objects that were used on a daily basis.The explanation of this is that the form and the substance of the ceremonial objects were not prescribed. Besides the 16–17th century’s goldsmiths, tin and ceramics pots, folk potter products, embroideries and folk textiles and joineries, in a considerable amount remained the 18–19th century’s silks manufacturing industry products, so in the applied art and folk art researches occupies an outstanding place the yet highly unknown church objects.
