About article:

This article compares the union between the Catholic Church and the Orthodox Church in Poland and Hungary. The Union closed in Brest city, Poland (1596), influenced the closure of the Union in the Uzhhorod city, Hungary (1646). The mutual comparison of the two unions shows a great deal of differences in the genesis of the unions and in their further development. The Polish Union has all the attributes of a classic Church Union, the Hungarian Union from 1646 has the attributes of a simple personal union. The Polish Union was guaranteed by the Church hierarchy, the king and the pope; the Hungarian Union had a private character between several Presbyters and the Bishop of the Latin Rite of Eger. In the case of Hungary, this was not a one-off event, but the process that was repeated in some years. A further comparison of both environments shows that, in Poland, latinization and polonization developed largely in the wake of the Union. In Hungary, this process took place much later, after the establishment of the Mukacheve Greek Catholic Bishopric (1771). Until then, the Union was inspired by cultural events from the Polish unites believers and Church to cope with the Latin clergy.
