Branded as heretics, outlawed, then forced to fight for their faith as well as their lives, the Hussites - followers of the martyred Bohemian priest Jan Hus (1371-1415) - occupy one of the most colorful and challenging chapters of European religious history. The essays reprinted in this book explore the early Hussite movement by examining the definition, nature and development of heresy, studying the social application of religious ideas, and examining some of the leading personalities of this remarkable era.
