Abstract and Keywords

Although Luther acknowledged the work of preceding reformers, including John Wycliffe, Wessel Gansfort, and Johann Pupper, he regarded Jan Hus as his true model, the pathfinder for his own reform and the thinker who, though not without error, clarified critical issues of reform in doctrine and practice, upon which he, Luther, could capitalize. His engagement with various streams of contemporary Hussitism produced both developing relationships and critical rethinking of his own positions, particularly on the Lord’s Supper, ecclesiology, and the pastoral ministry and priesthood of all believers.

Keywords: Jan Hus, Hussites, Lord’s Supper, Bohemian Brethren, Utraquists
