Jan Hus and the communists

This film is called Война за веру: Магистр Ян Гус – ‘War for the Faith: Master Jan Hus’. Made in 1954, it was part of the Czech communist government’s reclaiming of Hus, the first reformer (well before Luther), as a revolutionary figure. Less well known than the other ‘theologian of the revolution’, Thomas Muentzer.

One thought on “Jan Hus and the communists

  1. Nice! Another good film is the East German film about Thomas Munzter. “ALL THINGS IN COMMON”- Munzster. Hey just read Acts, James 5, and Proverbs.
