The study mentions the European precedents and Hungarian educational-political orders concerning the two authors, but above all it deals with text-books, anthologies, books of literary history and other school-books. It summarizes how Tibullus and Propertius's oeuvre has appeared in teaching Latin, which of their works were known and read, and how their significance in literary history were appreciated.
