The Letters of John Huss were collected by his friend, Peter Maldoniewitz, the notary, and it was the great Reformer of the sixteenth century, Martin Luther, who first published them, rendering justice to the faith, doctrines, and noble character of their author. Luther at first translated into Latin four letters, written by Huss in Bohemia, and published them in 1536, together with those which the nobles of Bohemia and Moravia had addressed to the Council of Constance. Wittemberg was the place where he published them, on the occasion of a general council being convoked by Paul III.

Hi. I hope you are fine. This, in my view, would make a wonderful project. If you ever decide to put it up, I will be the first to claim chapters. :hmm: (I wish I could do a solo of it, but going solo for this one can take time and I am not ready at this point.) :|

Hi Farnood.

I don't know that I'll take it on as a project but someone might.

Hi, Farnood, hi, Craig,

This looks like a marvelous project! Would either of you mind if I were to claim it as a solo read?

I have the time to do the project, I have done other solo reads, and the Reformation happens be in my wheelhouse. So I would count reading John Hus as a privilege!
