Criscovius Laurence, (Polon. Kriskowski,) a Lithuanian Knight, passed from the Eastern, or Greek Church, to Protestantism. He was Minister of a Church at Nieswiez, in Lithuania, and afterwards of some others in the same country. Peter Gonesius, in the year 1562, addressed some remarks to him against Paedobaptism. He is not known as an Antitrinitarian author ; but before he joined the Unitarians, he published, in 1558, a translation, from the Bohemian into the Polish language, of a work, "On the Safety of a quiet Conscience." He likewise assisted Simon Budnaeus in his translation of Luther's Catechism into the Lithuano-Russian dialect, which was printed at Nieswiez in 1562. We learn from Sandius, that he attended the Synod at Skrzynna in 1567, in the capacity of a Notary or Scribe, on behalf of the Arian party.(Vidend. Sandii B. A. p. 54. Bock, Hist. Ant. T.
