In the Footsteps of Bohemian Brethren – Kralice Bible, Still Alive After 400 years

The year 2013 marks the 400th anniversary of publishing the last version of the Kralice Bible in 1613 by Moravian Brethren (Unitas Fratrum) a important Protestant denomination of Czech reformation period This church’s common name comes from the original exiles who came to Saxony in 1722 from Moravia to escape persecution, but its religious heritage began in 1457 in Kunvald, Bohemia. The Moravian Brethren placed a strong emphasis on literary activities and pedagogy. Thus they managed to appreciate the invention of letter printing and established their own printing shop. However, because the Unity of the Brethren was a persecuted church during the 15th century the Brethren concealed their printing shops. In 1501 the first Protestant hymnbook was printed and during the period 1579–1593 they published a Czech translation of the Bible (the Kralice, or Kralitz, Bible), which made outstanding landmark in Czech literature. The Kralice Bible was translated into Czech from Hebrew and Greek by theologians of the Unity of the Brethren and is regarded as the finest extant specimen of classical Czech and became the standard Protestant version of the Bible.
