This film chronicles those who carried on Servetus’ message after his martyrdom, primarily Faustus Socinus and Georgio Biandrata, and how they carried his message forward to religious liberals in Poland and Transylvania. It discusses how the thoughts of Servetus, Socinus, Biandrata, and others came together in the mind of Dávid Ferenc in Transylvania and led to the formation of the first coherent Unitarian theology. It tracks that theology through the rise of liberal religion in Poland and how the Catholic Counter-Reformation of the 17th century drove the Unitarians out of Poland and west across Europe towards the Netherlands and England. It documents the influence of Servetus, Socinus, Dávid Ferenc, and various Polish Unitarians on the early English religious liberals such as John Biddle and Thomas Emlyn, and the work of Theophilus Lindsey and Joseph Priestley in forming an organized English Unitarianism. It discusses the split between the Arian and Socinian Unitarians in England. It mentions the early feminist work of the Unitarian Mary Wollstonecraft. It concludes with the emigration of Joseph Priestley from England to America in 1794.
