    Overview

    Aims and Scope

    2017 will mark the 500th anniversary of Martin Luther’s posting of the theses, overshadowing the 600th anniversary of the death of the Czech Church reformer, Jan Hus, burned at the stake for heresy by the Council of Constance. What was Hus’s contribution to European ecclesiastic and intellectual history? What was the reception of his life and work? How have Czechs and Germans commemorated him?

    "Der Sammelband ist klar und konzise aufgebaut. [...] Das gut zu lesende, ansprechend und sorgfältig gestaltete Buch ist mit zahlreichen hilfreichen Abbildungen versehen [...]"
    Thomas Martin Buck in: Historische Zeitschrift Band 305 (2017), S. 535-536

    "The essays in this volume provide a needed reevaluation of Hus (and the movements that followed him) as one of the critical figures of the history of European reform movements in the late Middle Ages (as Luther himself attests, “we are all Hussites!”)."
    Paul Silas Peterson in: Religious Studies Review 44.1 (2018), 113-114
