Jan Hus

Zwinglius Redivivus

husThis was on Brill’s facebook page and I found it interesting- so here it is:

Jan Hus burning at the stake, next to an initial I (incipit of the book of Genesis in the so-called Martinická Bible of the 1430s). This and other remarkable images of the illustrious Czech theologian, reformer and martyr can be find in the chapter on the Iconography of Jan Hus, published in our brand-new Companion to Jan Hus. www.brill.com/products/reference-work/companion-jan-hus.  Image courtesy of the Library of the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic.

I love the nonchalant expression on the face of the guy next to Hus, walking off.  He’s got a little book in his hand and it’s like he’s saying “I’d love to stay and watch you roast and make s’mores and all, Jan, but this book is just un-put-downable!”
