Summary/Abstract: The Reformed Church in Transylvania implemented the practice of confirmation in 1810,after a lengthy process of preparation. Summarising the previous experiments, bishop János Abats compiled a confirmation liturgy and a catechism as a private initiative. He presented this plan to the relevant ecclesiastical authorities, and after multiple debates within the synod, it was finally accepted and implemented by the synod in Szárazajta.
