Abstract

John Wyclif and Jan Hus were two medieval theologians who concerned the majority of their work attempting to improve the Christian religion. They were labeled as heretics by the Catholic Church. Different levels of patronage played an important role regarding in the success/ failure of Wyclif and Hus. Wyclif did not die as a heretic and was only officially labeled as such after the condemnation of Hus at the Council of Constance. Hus on the other hand suffered because his lack of patronage and was burned at the stake as a heretic.
