The Man of Many Devices, Who Wandered Full Many Ways
Festschrift in Honor of János M. Bak

Edited by Balázs Nagy and Marcell Sebok,
both Department of Medieval Studies, Central European University, Budapest

"Besides his committed political activity, he has always been a dedicated scholar, (and) an ambitious historian of the Middle Ages. I hope this collection of writings being offered to him does justice to this Odyssey."
- Gábor Klaniczay, Collegium Budapest

"The individual contributions are solid and frequently considerable . the Hungarica section will be extremely important Western European language introductions to materials and topics otherwise unavailable to Western European Readers. The quality is far above the norm for a Festschriften, a tribute to Bak's great influence and his own wide interests."
- Professor Patrick J. Geary, Director of the Medieval Institute, University of Notre Dame

More than sixty friends and colleagues pay tribute to the distinguished professor János Bak's 70th birthday. Notable contributors from many countries dedicate previously unpublished essays and articles in this celebratory Festschrift.

Reflecting the intellectual calibre of János Bak, scholars not only of medieval history, but also from the fields of modern history, philosophy, linguistics, art history and political science provide a broad range of perspectives on a wide range of disciplinary areas thus allowing a wide readership audience.

Containing over 700 pages, most articles are published in English with a few exceptions in German and French to reflect the true international character of the Festschrift.
