This is a review study of research dealing with Reformation issues in the work of Mikolaj Rej (1505-1569). The focus is on Rej's handling of religious themes, to the exclusion of social and political issues. The article surveys Rej's early work to profile his religious commitment, examines his position on a range of specific dogmatic points (justification by faith; predestination; the doctrine of the sacraments, the Eucharist, and especially the issue of transubstantiation; the cult of saints), and reviews his polemical writings. In effect, Rej is found to be an outspoken critic of ecclesiastical and social abuses, an eclectic theologian sensitive to the realities of his time and place, and a lively controversialist always ready to lash put at Catholic rituals or the doctrinal errors of the Protestant radicals (the Arians).
