Handicrafts

 

Handicrafts

Hungarian handicrafts flourished in free royal towns and they did in Košice, too. However, as a result of the Turkish wars and occupation, their volume fell back in European comparison. As a response to and compensation for the negative impacts of the Turkish invasion the first Hungarian journeymen appeared, actually much later than those in German speaking areas, where the system of guilds had already become an integral part of urban life. During their 'wanderings' Hungarian journeymen travelled all around Central-and Western Europe and returned to their homeland bringing the technical know-how of highly developed handicrafts. Very often it was the technical knowledge and experience of foreign journeymen settling down in towns in the Transleithan (beyond the river Leitha) region that the Hungarian guilds benefited from. Personal and official written legacies of journeymen, first and foremost wanderbooks and guild charters serve as an important source for research. The documents contain personal information about their owners as well as several regulations and rules for guilds and wanderings.

The wanderbooks and guild charters found in the 'Handicrafts' section of the Special Collections are from the holdings of the East Slovak Museum, Košice.
