This collection of studies that was published on the occasion of the 60th birthday of Cardinal Péter Erdő, gives a survey about the present state and directions of the Hungarian research in the Vatican Archives. It contains 16 studies that show some interesting chapters of the relationship between Hungary and the Holy See, focusing on the period between the 15th and 20th centuries. Some of them indicate the directions of the 'Impetus' Research Programme.
