MOSTY NA ÚZEMÍ NITRIANSKEJ STOLICE V PRVEJ POLOVICI 18. STOROČIA PODĽA NOTÍCIÍ MATEJA BELA (HISTORICKO-GEOGRAFICKÝ PRÍSTUP)
Bridges in the Nitra County in the first half of the 18th century due to the notitia by Matthias Bel (historical-geographic approach)
Languages of publication
Matthias Bel offered in his work Notitia Hungariae Novae historico-geographica a contemporary view of the specific studies of Hungarian counties within the Habsburg monarchy. The aim of the study is the historical-geographic analysis and interpretation of particular parts of his work in which M. Bel briefly described the bridges across the specific watercourses. Historical and geographical "exploration" into Bel´s characteristics of bridging of the rivers Váh, Nitra and Dudváh were carried out through a critical commentary of the translation of the original text using scientific literature, old maps, image sources, and results of field research as well as our own knowledge of these issues. The information about bridges which were mentioned by M. Bel corresponded only partially with today's knowledge. Bel´s characteristics of the most important bridges above watercourses provide contemporary image of that category of road constructions in the Nitra County in the first half of the 18th century.
