ABSTRACT
The present article deals with an aspect related to the history of the city of Târgu-Mureș, regarding the coming into town of Franciscan monks and their contribution to the modernisation of the city. The monks are historically confirmed in the late 13th century, while their monastery is mentioned only in 1332. Over time, information about the Franciscan monastery from Târgu-Mureș occur in the context of taking over by its branch order in 1444 or the initiative of its strengthening during the late seventy decades of the same century on the initiative of Prince Stefan Bathory of Transylvania. The convent was fortified because of the imminent danger, represented by the Ottoman approach. Between 2009 and 2013 in the castle of Târgu-Mureș archaeological excavations were conducted revealing: the old town hall, a 17th-century kitchen, a workshop that used bronze and a brick factory. All these elements were found in the place of the Franciscan monastery that once existed.
