GYÖRGY ENYEDI AND CENTRAL EUROPEAN UNITARIANISM IN THE 16-17TM CENTURIES November 1997, the Unitarian world commemorated the 400'h anniversary of the death of György Enyedi, the third bishop of the Unitarians of Transylvania. Through his theo­logical treatises written in Latin and Hungárián, as well as through the active role he played in church-policy, Enyedi exerted a great influence on contemporary culture in his country, while, for over a century, he was also a noted figure on the wider European intellectual scene. To celebrate this noble occasion, the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, the Transylvanian Museum Society, and the Unitarian Churches of Hungary and Transylvania organized a conference in Cluj-Napoca, Romania. This volume is a col­lection of the lectures given at the conference by the em­inent scholars who came from the Czech Republic, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, Italy, Romania, Poland, Hungary, Switzerland, and France to participate at this event. Some of the studies rely on recently discovered sources while they present the outstanding lifetime undertaking of György Enyedi as a preacher and church organizer. Other writers cover the European - and, especially, East-Central European - trends of cultural history that had a formidable influence on the development of Transylvanian Unitarianism from the age of Enyedi onwards. Thus, the resulting collec­tion of papers presents a portrait of a personality who played a definitive role in our cultural history, while also shedding some light on the historical context in the development of European thought and politics - the backdrop against the achievements of Enyedi can be properly appreciated.
