Translation: Klara Balicza
In its plenary session on February 20, 2018, the Hungarian Parliament adopted a bill to announce that January 13th each year would be remembered as the Day of Religious Freedom in Hungary.

The date commemorates the Edict of Torda in 1568, a decree that made it possible for Catholic, Lutheran, Reformed and Unitarian communities to practise their religion freely. The initiative for a Day of Religious Freedom originated from the Unitarian Church in Hungary and it was supported by Reformed and Lutheran churches in Transylvania (Romania) as well as all five parliamentary parties.
