Jan Hus was a priest and vice-rector of the University in Prague. It was with him that the Reformation began in the Czech Republic. He opposed the enrichment of the church clergy, simony, the sale of indulgences and the dominance of the German clergy and nobility in the Czech lands. This point of view coincided with the wishes of the local aristocracy and townspeople, and even King Vladislav the Fourth impressed Hus. In 1409, he signed the Kutnogorsk Decree, according to which the University of Prague became exclusively Czech. Jan Hus was executed in 1415 at the Cathedral in Constanta, and 4 years later, in 1419, the Hussite Wars began, which for 15 years devastated central Europe. The main acting force – the Hussites were named after this reformer and were followers of his ideas.
