Hungarian Architectural History

Bánffyhunyad (romanian: Huedin)



The town of Bánffyhunyad was founded in the Middle Ages (first mention in 1332, Hunad). From 1330 up until 1848, the landlords of the town were the Bánffy family. The town was part of the Kingdom of Hungary. In 1526, Huedin became part of the Principality of Transylvania and, until 1867, of the Grand Duchy of Transylvania. In 1910, the town's population was 5194, of whom 90.5% spoke Hungarian. The 2011 (census data) of the town's population counted 9346 people, of which 59.32% were ethnic Romanians, 28.88% ethnic Hungarians and 11.45% ethnic Roma.

13th century Gothic Reformed Church.

^ is the choir larger than the nave? Interesting, that would be similar to the church from Sebeș. (Sorry, I don't know the Saxon or Hungarian name of Sebeș).

The chior seems to be way younger than the nave.

In many german churches, the choir exceeds the nave - just look at the two main churches in Nuremberg. This choir looks like its heavily influenced by "german" gothic.

I would guess that the choir is from the last half of the 14th century

Interesting, thanks. In the case of the Sebeș church which I mentioned, it is documented that they started building a massive project, only to run out of money after building the choir first, hence the need to downsize the nave.

Little history!

The recent Hungarian name: Szászsebes. The szŕsz means saxon, the sebes comes from the nearby Sebes river which originate from the Hungarian adjective "sebes" meaning "speedy", while the German name is Mühlbach or Melnbach which means Mill Creek. The old romanian name was Sebeșul Săsesc, which comes from the hungarian Szászsebes.

BTW the orginal name was simply Sebes (first mention in 1150: terra Siculorum terrae Sebus), it was originally a székely territory. In the middle of the 1200s the székelys moved to the present days Székelyföld/Seklerland before arrived the saxons (Szászsebes/Sebes/Mühlbach main street name was down to the recent times Siculorumgasse, "Székely street").

The process of the extension was periodic many times in the gothic architecture. The choir and the nave was the two main replaced section.

old nave+old choir --> old nave + new choir --> new nave + new choir

These plans were unfinished many times. The classic unifinished situation is the old nave+new choir.
