History

In 1613 the head come of Zemplen and Ung counties Gyorgy Hommonai Drugeth founded a colegium in Humenne. The local jesuit monks were assigned to manage it. In 1640 Gyorgy's son, Janos Hommonai, the state judge, relocated the colegium to Uzhhorod. The facility started to work in 1646. In 1775 Maria Theresia gave the colegium, the Uzhhorod Cathedral and the castle to the Greek Catholic Church. In the 18th century during the wars of Gabor Bethlen, Gyorgy Rakoczi and Imre Tekeli the First the colegium was closed. During its existence, several buildings in Uzhhorod served as the gymnasium's campus:

  • 1646-1785 - the building of the Jesuit Monastery,
