Languages of publication
Medieval Hungarian society underwent significant changes during the 15th century, which brought many new possibilities for social application. In particular, this affected the inhabitants of the Hungarian cities, who had, in the previous century, gained considerable independence from the power and ownership structures in the country. In the 15th century, the transition to fully emancipated urban settlements with accumulated power and economic potential was completed. This change can best observed through the minutious study of individual persons from this period. A model example of this is the fate and story of the Trnava burgess Erhard Modrer, whose ancestors had played a significant role in the urban formation of Modra, and had also been members of the administrations of Trnava and Kremnica. The example of Erhard Modrer illustrates how, in this period, urban elites were ascending to the highest positions, even reaching the status of the Hungarian nobility.
