Original


Very rare silver medal from around 1717 Jan Hus (1370-1415)


Jan Hus (1370 - 1415) - Czech priest and national hero, philosopher, reformer of the Church, precursor of Protestantism, rector of the University of Prague.

Hus contributed to the codification of the literary Czech language. He is credited with the authorship of the treatise De Ortografia Bohemica, which lays out, inter alia, rules for the use of diacritical marks. His writing activity contributed to the flourishing of polemic Czech literature, thanks to which Czech became the most developed Slavic language in the 15th century.

For the Czechs, Hus is part of the national pantheon. Standing in line with Prince Wenceslas, Emperor Charles IV and President Tomáš Masaryk, he is one of the most important figures in Czech history.

The anniversary of the burning of Hus (July 6) is a public holiday and a day off in the Czech Republic.
