  Article:   LAY AND ECCLESIASTIC IN THE HERALDIC REPRESENTATION ON THE MATTHIAS LOGGIA IN HUNEDOARA CASTLE.

  Abstract:  The Heraldic Wall is a unique pictorial source from the mid fifteenth century preserved in the Castle of Hunedoara until the beginning of the twentieth century. It consisted of fourteen coats of arms that can be attributed to the most influential laic and ecclesiastic officeholders of the Hungarian Kingdom. These arms serve as a particular historical source to understand the political context John Hunyadi was involved in. The present essay offers important clues about the identity of its owners and about the historical context the Heraldic Wall was commissioned in. It also tries to reconstruct the original design and tinctures of the arms, since the original wall painting no longer exists.
