"A jeśli Jego chwale potrzebna będzie moja śmierć, niech mi ją raczy dać bez strachu". Proces Jana Husa w Konstancji
'IF HIS GLORY NEEDS MY DEATH, THEN HE SHOULD GIVE IT TO ME WITHOUT ANY FEAR'. TRIAL OF JOHN HUS IN CONSTANCE
Languages of publication
John Hus, summoned by Sigismund of Luxembourg in autumn of 1414, went to the ecumenical council of Constance to present and explain his own program of the renewal of church and spiritual life. He also hoped to be cleared of heresy charges. John Hus was in November 1414 after the preliminary hearing. His lawsuit which lasted seven months consisted of accusation, testimony of witnesses, interrogation by the committee of ecumenical council and three trials in public (5th, 7th and 8th of June 1415). John Hus was found guilty of heresy and the lawsuit ended with his death sentence. He refused to seize an opportunity to retract his views and thus save his life. The death sentence has been executed on 6th July 1415. This description of John Hus' trial, almost unknown from other sources, we owe to Piotr z Mladonovic, the author of 'Zprava o M. J. Husowi v Kostnici. The last part 'Konec o svatém muzi a ctihodnem mistru Janu Husowi, horlivem milovniku prawdy Jeziate Krista, a jeho utrpeni, jez pokorne vyrpel' was read during worship in Hussite churches until the defeat in the battle of Biala Gora.
