Jan Hus Monument in Old Town Square

Jan Hus Monument in Old Town Square

April 30, 2015. Prague, Czechia.

This is the Jan Hus Monument (Pomník mistra Jana Husa) in Old Town Square. Jan Hus was burnt at the stake as a heretic, by the Roman Catholic Church, after refusing to recant his reformist views a hundred years before Martin Luther and the Protestant Reformation. His death was seen as an outrage by the Czech people and was one of the catalysts that led to the Hussite Wars.
