The Korda Publishing House, founded by Judge Ferenc Xavér, a saintly Jesuit, was operated by the Society of the Daughters of the Heart of Jesus (now called the Society of the Heart of Jesus). He was one of the most significant book publishing companies between the two world wars, when he experienced the renewal of Hungarian Catholic life. From its founding in 1919 to the dissolution of the monastic orders in 1950, he produced a number of publications on spirituality, helping the family, and youth in his own printing press and distributed it in shops in many parts of the country. This unparalleled book collection is now being made public, anyone can browse and read the volumes.
On Thursday, December 7, from 13.00, the Circulation Room, the Research Room, and the smaller reading rooms will be closed due to the event. We provide learning opportunities between 13.00. and 22.00 in the Reading Hall and in the ground floor Training Room.
