Abstract: A biographic research of the Polish nobleman Stanislovas Skashevskis (died in 1579), who emigrated to Samogitia at the beginning of the 16th century, allows to state partly the influence of clientele relationship to the whole reformation process in Samogitia. The nobleman’s clientele relations with four influential patrons of the GDL (S.Kęsgaila, J.Chodkevichius, M.Radvila, K.Radvila) and also with dukes of Prussia become apparent. However, the information about the content of religious clientele relationship is not abundant. This research is important not only as a biographic research but also as one that adds some information to the reformation process in Samogitia. According to the wealth, education and his post, Skashevskis belonged to the elite of Samogitia. He had found his second home in the GDL – he had made a decision to find a residence in Kurtuvėnai. The estate and the town became the important communicative center of Biržėnai District. From 1557 the nobleman and his descendants belonged to evangelical reformats. At least four specific features connected with protestant mentality could be distinguished: useful communication with the elite of Prussia from the cultural – economic point of view, individual instances of setting free dependant peasants, the activity of Evangelic church and sermons in Lithuanian at the beginning of the 17th century.
