The paper offers a succinct synopsis of life and work of two writers of late socinianism (the end of the 17th century and first three decades of the 18th century). The second of the authors discussed here (S. Crell) gained considerable reputation in the environment of European intellectuals, for whom the issues raised in the socinian literature were important and lively discussed (among them such as Bayle, Locke, Newton). At the end of the passages concerning Crell, the epistolary discussion between Crell and Leibniz (started by Leibniz) on theological and partially metaphysical issues interesting to both thinkers was discussed.
