One such figure, Miguel Servetus, notoriously burned at the stake in Calvin's Geneva, was the founder of early modern antitrinitarianism, a dangerously radical belief which, as Bietenholz demonstrates, he largely arrived at through Erasmus' philologically driven claim that there was nothing of the Trinity in the New Testament.
If you don't believe that, pick up a history book and read about 16th-century Geneva, where Miguel Servetus was burned at the stake for disagreeing with John Calvin's view of the Trinity.
