JÁNOS PERÉNYI, MASTER OF THE TREASURY AND HIS RELATIONSHIP WITH THE UPPER-HUNGARIAN CITIES (1438–1458)
Languages of publication
In this paper the author focuses on the career of János Perényi (†1458), Master of the Treasury and his peculiarly long activity as Master of the Treasury which lasted for nearly twenty years. This paper aims to draw a sketch of the activities of Perényi as a Treasurer and to examine his relationship with the Upper-Hungarian cities in the years 1438 – 1458. The thesis is based on the materials kept in the archives of the Upper-Hungarian cities. Most of the documents issued by the Treasurer were missile letters addressed to the cities under his jurisdiction, and privilege letters which included the decisions of the Court of the Master of the Treasurer. Sporadically we can find receipts, which prove the acceptance of the sums paid to the Treasurer. However, we cannot draw a full picture without examining the letters of cities, rulers, major officeholders or such noticeable characters as Governor János Hunyadi and Jan Jiskra, mercenary captain and sheriff of County Šariš.
