The study of libraries in medieval Hungary is based on historical and philological surveys as well as the manuscript evidence. The surviving medieval source material provides information on the Pannonhalma monastic library, the Esztergom manuscripts, the Esztergom attributions, the Esztergom codex of Bernard of Perugia, the Esztergom Collegium Christi, the Veszprém manuscripts, the Veszprém inventory, the codex of Bishop Mesko of Veszprém, the Zagreb manuscripts, the Zagreb inventories, and the Pozsony chapter library. Parish libraries and school libraries are also covered along with the role of the peregrination, the humanist libraries, and the Corvinian Library. Circumstantial evidence on the libraries of medieval Hungary is also considered.
