Peterffi, Charley a Hungarian Jesuit, was born towards the close of the 17th century. He was descended from a noble family. Admitted among the Jesuits in 1715, he taught belles-lettres at Tyrnau and philosophy at Vienna. He died August 10, 1746. He made himself known by a valuable collection, Sacra concilia in regno Hungariae celebrata, ab a. 1016 usque ad a. 1715 (Vienna, 1742, fol.), in which a good method and the variety of research are to be admired.
