The operation of the Ecclesian (arts and history) collection in the Catholic rectory was permitted by the Ministry of Culture and Education in 1967. The institute pursued its activities as a museum, library and archive.

The collection itself consists of the relics of the local congrgation. As a result of a 20-year-long collection work this material was supplemented by the unused books, documents, gifts, purchases and lithurgical items of other rectories in Aba├║j and Zempl├ęn. continue
Permanent exhibitions
A taste of the exhibition
The well-being of Hegyalja, which can be put down to the grape-growing and wine producing, resulted in rich church enteriours in the 18th century. The 19-20th deterioration of the area and the changes of the taste had an unfavourable effect on the baroque inheritance. Thanks to the collecting work of Antal Kuklay, the museum today keeps a rich collection of the baroque ecclesiastic arts and liturgical life. continue
The Jesuit paters were settled in the town by the widow of Gy├Ârgy R├ík├│czi II, Zs├│fia B├íthori. After the dissolution of the holy order in 1773 the church facilities, their library and a part of the archive was shifted into the ownership of the denomination. Iconographic rarities are the portraits of Ferenc R├ík├│czi II. and monk and first Bible translator L├íszl├│ B├íthori. In the library of the collection there are nearly 50 books of the Jesuit library and 17-18th century theological works. continue
