The seige of Nándorfehérvár

This month sees the 550th anniversary of Hungarian victory at the seige of the town then called Nándorfehérvár (today known as Belgrade) – an event subsequently said by Pope Callixtus III to have “decided the fate of Christendom”. This anniversary – indeed the whole event – escaped me too, but it was pointed out to me by my good Hungarian friend Sándor Nagy.
