I rapporti tra Tamás Bakóc ed Ippolito I d’Este (1496–1520)
Vol. XIX/2018/1-2, pp. 201-220
The focus of the paper is the relationship of Ippolito d’Este and Tamás Bakóc between 1498 and 1520. The importance of these personalities lies in the fact that as prelates of the Hungarian church and cardinals, they were often on the opposite sides in the intricate diplomatic relationship of Hungary, Rome, Venice and the Habsburgs. Although their tough conflicts in the political field are evident, they seemingly held regular contact with each other on issues concerning the daily management of their Hungarian dioceses. The court of Ippolito in Eger could rely on the advices of the Archbishop of Esztergom not only in the field of management, but concerning the problems of everyday life or even those of Hungarian politics. They both intended to maintain a balanced relationship, respecting the interests of the other side. Concentrating on the mutually beneficial issues, they apparently tried to profit from each other despite their occasional political conflicts.
