The paper publishes those fourteenth-sixteenth-century stove tiles from the Benedictine abbey at Pécsvárad that were excavated in the 1960s-1980s, with the exception of the material from a single stove built from tiles featuring mixed (tin and lead) glaze. Conspicuous among the pieces recovered are fragments of the Ernuszt stove, so called because it bears the coat of arms of Zsigmond Ernuszt, bishop of Pécs from 1473 until 1505. In actual fact, this stove was a variant of the so-called knight-figure stove (Ofen mit Ritterfiguren). According to our present knowledge, fragments of stoves similar to the Ernuszt one have come to light not just in Pécsvárad, but in Pécs, in Vokány-Trinitáspuszta, and even at Raholca Castle (Grad Ružica, near Orahovica in Croatia). The stoves were probably all made in one workshop in Pécs, although at different times.
