István Geleji Katona (1589–1649) was court-chaplain to the Calvinist Prince of Transylvania Gabriel Bethlen and an important figure of the 17th-century Transylvanian Reformed Church.[1] He was notable for polemic anti-Catholic literature and against Szekler Sabbatarians.[2] He sought to formalise the Calvinist liturgy and sacred music, reducing its diversity.[3]
