Abstract

To commemorate the 600th anniversary of the martyrdom of Jan Hus, this session examines the role his teachings and ideas played in shaping the historic narrative of the Bohemian Reformation. In particular, these papers piece together aspects of the Bohemian Reformation that attempt to broaden the vision of what the movement included by examining external influences and internal critiques to create a more vibrant and inclusive narrative for the period.
