Jan Hus Day (CZE) History
Jan Hus Day commemorates the martyrdom of Jan Hus. Jan Hus was a Czech priest, religious reformer and university professor who is best known for his advocacy of church reforms during the early 15th century. Over the years, Jan Hus amassed many followers by conducting his church services in Czech, not Latin. However, he was eventually detained for his teachings and tried by the Catholic Church. He was found guilty and burned at the stake on 6 July 1415.
Jan Hus Day is celebrated annually on 6 July in memory of his death. His death spiked the Hussite wars, in which his followers fought against the Roman Catholic Church.
