Description Author of this study describes the influence of Wycliffe’s works on the formation of Jan Hus’s Antichrist rhetoric. She focuses on the influence of Wycliffe’s rhetoric on Hus’s Latin sermons, primarily concentrating on the university sermon Abiciamus opera tenebrarum (1404) and two synodal sermons, Diliges Dominum Deum (1405) and State succincti (1407). She also considers other sermons that may be associated with Hus’s university activities, such as the works collectively known as Sermones de oboedientia (1410).
