I’m still here at Prague at the statue of John Huss, the first martyr of the reformation. You will feel the presence of the Holy Spirit as you hear the testimonies of these people.
After John Wycliffe, the theorist of ecclesiastical reform, Huss is considered the first church reformer, as he lived before Luther, Calvin, and Zwingli. His teachings had a strong influence on the states of Western Europe, most immediately in the approval of a reformed Bohemian religious denomination, and, more than a century later, on Martin Luther himself. He was burned at the stake for heresy against the doctrines of the Catholic Church, including those on ecclesiology, the Eucharist, and other theological topics.
