Jan Hus 1369-1415
9 January 2018 | by See all my reviews

Back in the days when most of the population could not read or write folks in power knew knowledge was a dangerous thing. Even knowledge of the scriptures was not really good because you could find verses in the Bible that could justify all kinds of actions. So the bible was held for the priest and the scripture was doled out in bits and pieces so that the message was assured.

Not only that the Bible was only printed in Latin and only the church used Latin. People like John Wycliffe, Ulrich Zwingli, and the subject Jan Hus did not think this should be so. Only Hus paid with his life.

A pious man and a pious priest and there's a difference, Hus also had certain doctrinal disputes with the church. He got burned at the stake for said differences.

Rod Colbin does a fine job as the older Hus who stood up against tyranny of the mind. It's a good film and a reminder that people like Hus exist.
