In the early 15th century Jan Huss began preaching against the corruption of the Catholic Church. The people of Bohemia, exhausted and angry at the demands and greed of the clergy rose up, and began a reformation that preceded Luther’s German Reformation. This is a history of the Hussites, the politics of the Holy Roman Empire, the Catholic Church, and the revolutionary Bohemians; it is the story of their war and the four crusades sent by the Catholics into Bohemia to crush this heresy; and it is the history of how, exhausted, the war ended with a negotiated peace.
