Work done on interpreting the context, the historical figure and the symbolic meaning of Jan Hus is another particular example of how Ecumenical Theology works with the past, knowing that it cannot change it, but that it can contribute to changing its meaning for the present. This chapter presents a new text, partially drawing on the following previous studies: “Jan Hus: Reform of the Church through a Conversion of Its Members towards a Christian Spirit”;1 “The Ecumenical Re-evaluation of the Heritage of Jan Hus in the Czech Churches”;2 “Jan Hus in Ecumenical Discussion;”3 “Eschatological Elements in Hus’s Understanding of Orthopraxis”;4 and “Eschatological Elements in Jan Hus’s Ecclesiology and Their Implications for the Later Development of the Church in Bohemia”.5
