Episode #13: The Life and Death of Jan Hus


Jan Hus was a Czech priest and philosopher and was known to be the first church reformer of the early 15th century. His viewpoint on the Catholic Church and her priests sparked a backlash that led to his excommunication and later execution in 1419. The followers of Jan Hus took up arms in his memory and helped to usher in the Thirty Years War. We will examine the life of Jan Hus and the aftermath that ensued; the Hussite War.
