Summary/Abstract: Bishop Sándor Aranyosrákosi Székely (1794–1854) edited the catalogue of the Unitarian ministers and teachers on April 13th, 1849. Th e manuscript has a historical importance documenting the presence of Unitarians from Transylvania and especially the Szeklerland. This document shows the contemporary organizational chart of the church, listing the districts and parishes and naming all the white collars working in the church. The catalog shows that all parishes had schools, most of the congregations had a minister and a teacher too. Teachers usually worked as cantors. It is extremely valuable that the bishop created a complete list of the Unitarian clergy from the era of the 1848–1849 revolution. The paper sketches the possible uses of the catalog and the data included in it.
