Hungarian Literature, literature written in the Hungarian language from medieval times to the present. During the Middle Ages, most cultural activities in Hungary were carried on in Latin, the language of the clergy. The vernacular began to be used, however, in translations of legends and of Latin religious poetry. The earliest extant Hungarian literary work of importance is a funeral oration that dates from the beginning of the 13th century.
