This article introduce Anthony Verancsics´s life, personality and his work. He was a successful diplomat, the high priest and scientist. His work was associated with progress of the late Renaissance in Hungaria. He was in close written contact with his friends and became part of international „respublice litterarie”. At the time when he held the offices of the Archbishop of Ostrihom and governor of the Habsburg Emperor, he embarked twice on a long and dangerous journey to Constantinople. The Drinopol peace treaty was signed as a result of his negotiation with the Turkish sultan there. Verancsics maintained a court of his own - small but adequate to his means, that was strongly connected to him personally and dissolved after his death. Parts of his heritage have retained its importance even to the present they, including a liturgical rite book heavily influenced by the renaissance art, as well as various fragments located in the Eger basilica, which was built at his command, as well as his plans of the castle in Nové Zámky.
