AKJV preface 1875 Jackson. John Huss accused of “heresy.”
The clergy “excommunicated” Huss and he had to retire to the country and still, he could not live in peace. The council of Constance (World Church Authorities) met in 1414 and Huss was summoned to answer to the charges of “heresy.” He was promised safe conduct on passport by the emperor but the promise was not kept. The Church Council was determined to condemn John Huss. He was declared a “heretic” and given the opportunity to deny his faith or be burned at the stake. He did not deny his faith.
On the 6th day of July in 1415, just as he had completed his 42nd Birthday, he was led forth for the burning. He was bound to the stake with heaps of straw and bundles of sticks piled around him. Another offer was made to allow him to deny his faith, which he boldly rejected. The fire was set and as the flames enwrapped him he was heard to say, “Jesus, Son of the Living God, have mercy on me.” John Huss’ ashes were thrown into the Rhine River but his followers dug up the precious earth and sent it to Prague, Czechoslovakia.
