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.

High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Valentinus Smalcius was a German Socinian writer and preacher, born in Gotha. He is known for his German translation of the Racovian Catechism, and a New Testament translation into Polish. A migrant to Poland, he became largely Polonised towards the end of his life. He was a preacher of the Polish Brethren at Raków, Kielce County. The origins of the Racovian Catechism are not quite clear. A traditional view is that Smalcius put it together, perhaps with collaborators, from literary remains of Faustus Socinus. Another is that it was developed by Smalcius and Hieronim Moskorzowski (Moscorovius) in 1605, others say Moskorzowski wrote it with Piotr Stoi ski (the younger) and Johannes Völkel, and Smalcius was the translator into German for publication in 1608. In any case the Catechism was constructed by disciples of Socinus, and Smalcius probably had a leading role.
