« back to classes page
A hundred years before the Protestant Reformation, Jan Hus, a Czech theologian, called for church reform which led to him being burned alive in 1415 at the Council of Constance. His followers who continued to adhere to the heretical teachings faced five crusades against them—resulting in the crusaders’ defeat at the hands of a peasant army. This presentation examines the role of the blind military genius who had trained it, the spread of the movement, its collapse and its survival today as the Bohemian/Moravian Brethren.
