Vizsoly Bible


About the Bible project

The main objective of the project was to:

  • To promote the cross-border exchange of experience in the preservation and promotion of a unique work of written cultural heritage – the 16th century Vizsoly Bible (also known as the Károli Bible).
  • To ensure the preservation of the cultural and historical heritage of Vizsoly and Košice and to increase interest in this heritage among citizens by drawing attention to the shared religious, economic and social roots of Vizsoly and Košice, and the multi-ethnic and multicultural cooperation involved in the creation, translation and printing of the Bible.
  • To develop a new institutional cooperation between public sector and religious organisations by creating common cross-border media content and an active exchange of information and experience.
  • The project was supported by the Small Projects Fund under the cross-border Interreg V-A Slovakia – Hungary Cooperation Programme.
