Nadasdy, Thomas a Hungarian Protestant divine of some note, flourished during the Reformation movement of the 16th century. But little is known of his personal history. He was distinguished by unusual attainments, power, wealth, zeal, and generosity in supporting the cause of the Gospel. He died in 1553. "Nadasdy had been a strong pillar in the Church in a day when every man was with one hand building the walls of Zion and with the other holding a weapon." See Craig, Hist. of the Prot. Church in Hungary (Bost. 1864), pages 92, 93.
