Summary/Abstract: In the last quarter of the 18th century, Protestant intellectuals were trying to write substitutions for Péter Bod’s Magyar Athenas. Mihály Szathmári Pap and József Benkő also took part in this. The notes of the two scientists can be found in Cluj-Napoca. These lists can be defined as intermediate spaces that emerged between the appearance of Hungarian Athenas and the New Hungarian Athenas. In my lecture, I would like to reveal the relation of the texts to each other because in this way we do not only gain insight into how these corpora were enriched but can also understand what kind of professional relationships were formed.
