Czech Reformation Grand Tour, South Bohemia

On this tour you will discover the important places of the Bohemian and Moravian Reformation. At the end of the 14th and during the early 15th Century, the Reformation in Bohemia and Moravia was strongly influenced by the work of Jan Hus. He served as a preacher, professor and writer. There are several places, especially in Prague, which are related to the work of this famous Czech reformer. Jan Hus was a Czech spiritual thinker in the Middle Ages and at the same time the rector of Prague's famous Charles University. He was particularly strong in criticizing the lax morals of the church. In this respect, he was influenced by the thinking of the English reformer John Wycliffe and was persecuted for his stance by the Catholic Church. He was finally burned at the stake as a heretic in 1415 during the Council of Constance. His death was the catalyst for the Hussite unrest in Europe and the same time his work served as a precursor to the later Reformation. The Czech Reformation ushered in a century of the greater reformation in Europe. This period was represented by another more well-known Augustinian monk and university professor by the name of Martin Luther. He identified himself with the Czech Reformation based on the book by Jan Hus, called “About the church.”
