The University of Paris and the Hussites in 1428–1429
Languages of publication
The study analyses the Exhortation (exhortatio) of the University of Paris from 14 December 1428, which appeals to its readers to wait no longer, face the expanding Hussitism and insist on the convocation of a general council. Other than the content, it notices the formalities of the document, its sources, the historical context and primarily the circumstances of its preservation, which opens a path to new essential knowledge. It briefly introduces the four as-yet known copies of the exhortation from the 15th century and deals in more detail with the Berlin manuscript Theol. lat. qu. 323. In it, the exhortation is included in a collection of writings, which have the character of a form collection and which are related to the history of the University of Paris in the 1420s. Since it is an as-yet unexamined source, the author determines in the form of an investigation some details of its character and besides the exhortation notices the other texts with a relation to Hussitism in more detail. As the introductory section attributes the stylization of the entire collection to the French scholar Nicholas of Clemanges (†1437), the author of the study in the case of the mentioned Bohemical texts examines the likelihood of that claim. He also briefly indicates its contents, dating and its possible historical anchoring. A critical edition of the Parisian exhortation is attached to the study.
