e study consists of four chapters that are followed by a list containing the names of students who attended the University of Vienna and that of Cracow prior to 1552. e first chapter that goes after the part in which the author recalls his personal memories about Alxandru Szentmiklosi, gives a brief overview of medieval Central European universities (Prague, Cracow and Vienna). In the second chapter the author discusses the circumstances of foundation as well as the activity of medieval Hungarian universities (Pécs, Óbuda, Pozsony). e third chapter outlines the main tendencies and results of research into the history of the Hungarian peregrinatio academica in the Middle Ages. e fourth chapter deals with the history of medieval peregrination in relation to the DanubeTisza/Tisa-Maros/Mureş region in general and to Temesvár/Timişoara in particular. As a result of his research the author, by utilizing the new publications of primary and secondary sources, identified 61 persons from medieval Temesvár/Timişoara who attended foreign universities (Vienna: 35, Cracow: 25 and Bologna: 1) prior to 1552.
