 John Huss

I don't know how many here have read the little book [u]Hus the Heretic[/u] by Poggius the Papist, but I assure you that you will be blessed by reading it. It is a letter written by a Roman Catholic in the early 15th century to a friend describing his part in the trial of John Huss. He apparently escorted Huss to Constance for the hearing before the Council but upon seeing and hearing the man was brought to an encounter with truth that he never expected. It is only about 60 pages long, but very easy to read since it is a letter and so very enlightening regarding that blessed forerunner of the Reformation. It can be downloaded freely [url=http://www.spokenwordchurch.com/books/hustheheretic.htm]here.[/url]

 Re: John Huss

Thank you brother - This is very remarkable, even a third of the way through it.

 Re:

Thank you for posting. I wasn't sure where the information about Huss' prophecy at his death regarding Martin Luther came from, but now I know!

 Re:

I too had read that quote many times without knowing by whose authority. Ironically I had this little volume tucked away for three or four years among several others in "Reformation History" in some of my software, and was researching the Waldensians and ran across the title and just read out of curiosity. I am so glad I found it. My first thought after reading it was, "this needs to be on SI". So I found it online and posted it.

Mike, I was sure you would be interested in this with your background.

One of my favorite quotes is this: "Loudly penetrated Hus’ fiery words: “Love thy neighbor as thyself, and — God above everything else!” into every hearer’s heart.
More masterly, more courageously no apostles’ holy lips could speak.
There you should have heard, dear Nikolai, the interpretation of the parable of the proud priest, the self-satisfied Levite, who had left the man, beaten and wounded, lying beside the road not cared for nor pitied by anybody, until a despised follower of another religion honored his own belief by the deed and not by hollow sham. And then you should have noted how he called the ways of our priests a godless idolatry, which is only a ringing bell and stupid salt, as long as hatred, pride, strife and persecution came from them and as long as they were not willing to heal everybody’s wounds, be they in soul or body, manfully and without rancor. Yes, such teaching is not heresy, or Christ himself is such an heretic in every way."
