Some of its written memories are unique rarities both in Europe and the world.
The Great Library belonging to the Reformed College, with its half a million holdings, preserves the largest surviving collection of the Hungarian Reformed Church, and the most independent Hungarian bookbinding style was also developed here at the end of the 17th century. The text collection includes, among other things, 39 codices written on parchment in the 1300s and 1500s; 146, a so-called original form published in the 1500s; 114 works, the only surviving copies in the world, as well as 1,600 curiosities preserved from the memories of Hungarian literature before 1700.
The manuscripts preserved by former students of the school - Endre Ady, Mihály Vitéz Csokonai, János Arany, Ferenc Kölcsey - should also not be overlooked, which also enrich the collection. The most valuable pieces, however, are Nicolaus Germanusz´s saved manuscript maps from around 1450 and 1470 and Péter Méliusz Juhász´s first Hungarian botany, the Herbarium from 1578.
