Bodockh (also Bodock, Bodtock, Potok am Bodroch, Slavic: Sárospatak, Šarišský potok), a Hutterian Brethren Bruderhof in Transylvania, where there had previously been a Bruderhof at Alwinz. The Brethren settled here upon a demand by Prince George Rákóczy I of Transylvania, who, like his son George II, was Calvinist. At first the Brethren were unwilling to obey the order; but when the prince proceeded with intimidation they decided in August 1645 to transfer the household at Schäkowitz in Hungary to Bodockh on the estates of the Rákóczy family. The group prospered at first, but later they suffered from heavy taxation, and after a brief existence it died out, when the successor of George II (d. 1660), Franz Rákóczy, became Catholic.
