Jan Hus (1371 – 1415) Master Jan Hus
A prominent Czech religious reformer who criticised the Church at a time when Europe was heading into religious turmoil due to the papal schism. Hus was born in the small village of Husinec in South Bohemia, graduated from the Theological Faculty of Prague University, and later became its rector. At the time he was one of the greatest thinkers in Europe. He preached in the Bethlehem Chapel about putting right problems which had developed in the Church, and about returning the Church to its original beliefs such as modesty and recognising the bible as the single religious text. He criticised corruption in the Church, rife at the time, and wrote many works on reforming the Church which later formed the basis for the reform movement in Germany under Martin Luther. Hus soon brought the wrath of the pope in Rome upon himself, and was excommunicated. Even though for a long time he was under direct protection of King Wenceslas IV who also had his grievances with the state of the Church, he was forced to leave Prague in 1412. In 1414 he was invited to appear before the church council in Constance, where he would be given the opportunity to defend his thoughts. But Hus’s fate was decided by the council long before he arrived and he was declared a heretic in 1415 and burnt at the stake.

  Tourist guide PRAGUE CITY LINE - Prague 1 (14,7 MiB)

Prague 1 still belongs to one of the most attractive parts of the whole Prague. Probably nowhere else you can find such a concentration of historic monuments and places where the history and romance of bygone times are all around you. Hardly anywhere you can walk on the same paths where were walking Franz Kafka, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, and the Golem of Prague.
