Description The activity of the so-called Dresden School is believed to have been a stimulating element in religious developments in Bohemia at the beginning of the 15th century. During the formative years of the Hussite movement, a group allegedly comprising German masters presumably ran a “School” located at the Black Rose House in Prague that played an important role in the scholarly disputes of the period. The contribution of the Dresden School to the Hussite ideology and the possible influences of and connections with the teachings of John Wyclif, an influential Czech theologian Matthias of Janov, or with popular sectarianism (Waldensians) have been often studied by modern scholars. However, the concept of this particular School remains unclear. In the lecture, the possible bonds between the members of the Dresden School are discussed from various angles.
