    Default Drawings of medieval Hungarian churches

    Some sketches i've made of three Hungarian churches. These are:

    The ancient cathedral at Esztergom, destroyed in the late 16th or early 17th century (under turkish rule).

    The ancient royal basilica at Székesféhervár, damaged during the turkish siege in 1543, and finally destroyed in the late 16th century, also under turkish rule.

    The ancient cathedral at Eger, destroyed in the same way at the same time.

    All the drawings are based on the ground plans of the excavated remains of those churches, and also on the few surviving buildings of that time in Hungary.

    More churches will probaby be added soon (the cathedral at Kalocsa, or the medieval Matthias church at Budapest)...

    Nice! I'd be interested in seeing the ground plans and other references, too, if you have the rights and inclination to upload them.

    Ground plan for Székesféhervár: http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-gJfvUVCtpi.../1746_nagy.jpg

    (My drawing shows the state before the last extension of the chancel (dark red)

    Ground plan for the cathedral at Esztergom: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedi...layout.svg.png

    ...and the whole castle: http://muvtor.btk.ppke.hu/romanika/eszthr.gif

    (the chapel at the south side of the nave has no buttresses, so my drawing's not that exact concerning this part)


    Ground plan for the cathedral at Eger: http://archeologia.hu/content/archeo...-alaprajza.jpg

    (The ground plan shows a late 14th century state which we don't know if it was destroyed in the early 15th century or even never completed. The late 15th century chancel had similar outlines but was slightly bigger and included also some chapels at the south side of the nave.
