Jakob Palaeologus, an anti-Trinitarian (Unitarian), a native of the island of Chios, came to Transylvania and Poland in 1575, where he became an influential Socinian. Socinus, however, repudiated his teaching that military service and holding worldly office are compatible with the profession of Christianity, and of the non-adoration of Jesus. Palaeologus was burned at the stake as a heretic in Rome in 1585. Worthy of note is his book against infant baptism: De baptismo liberorum.
