Mihály Lombard de Szentábrahám

Mihály Lombard de Szentábrahám (Városfalva, Udvarhely County, 1683 – Kolozsvár, March 30, 1758) was a Hungarian Unitarian bishop.[1] He re-laid the foundations of the Unitarian Church in Transylvania during a period of harassment until the accession of Joseph II and the return of an era of tolerance.

During the period 1718-1720 the settlements were struck by famine and plague.

In 1720 he became director of the John Sigismund Unitarian Academy, at the time when the great-great grandson of Fausto Sozzini, Andrzej Wiszowaty Jr. was a teacher there.
