The Hussites were a Christian movement following the teachings of Czech reformer Jan Hus (c. 1369–1415), who became one of the forerunners of the Protestant Reformation. This predominantly religious movement was propelled by social issues and strengthened Czech national awareness. After the Council of Constance lured Jan Hus in with a letter of indemnity and then put him to death on 6 July 1415, the Hussites fought a series of wars (1420–1434) for their religious and political cause. Among present-day Christians, Hussite traditions are represented in the Moravian, Unity of the Brethren, and the refounded Czechoslovak Hussite churches.
