High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! The Racovian Catechism (pol. Katechizm Rakowski) is a nontrinitarian statement of faith from the 16th century. When the views of Faustus Socinus became widely known, it became hard for him to stay in Italy. He was invited to Poland by a group of incipient nontrinitarians, and traveled to Transylvania in 1580 to aid another such group. In Poland, he found followers of Servetu and joined with them to form a nontrinitarian church known as the Minor Church of the Polish Brethren. The title Racovian comes from the publishers, the Racovian Academy of the Polish Brethren founded in Raków, Kielce County by Jakub Sienie ski in 1602. The catechism was published in 1605, and subsequently translated into other languages. These nontrinitarians later became known as Socinians. The Socinian Minor Church survived in Poland until 1639 when it was outlawed by the Polish Sejm in the Roman Catholic Counter-Reformation.
