Jan Hus
b. c. 1370; Husinec, Holy Roman Empire
d. 7-6-1415; Konstanz, HRE - burned at the stake

The Hussite religious movement, named after Jan Hus, was a precursor to the Protestant Reformation of trying to bring the practice of Christianity back to its roots. Hus, a philosopher and reformer whose thinking was influenced by John Wycliff, and in turn influenced Martin Luther, was accused of heresy and burned at the stake.

Jan Hus quotes ~
• “For God is my witness that I neither preached, affirmed, nor defended them, though they say that I did.”
• “O God and Lord, now the council condemns even Your own act and Your own law as heresy, since You Yourself did lay Your cause before Your Father as the just judge, as an example for us, whenever we are sorely oppressed.”

Anne Hutchinson
b. July, 1591; England
d. 8-20-1643; killed by Indians in what is now Pelham Bay Park, NY.

Anne Hutchinson, née Marbury, was a key figure in the development of religious freedom in the American colonies.

Hutchinson taught that salvation was through inward grace and not through performing religious works in Bible study and discussion groups she held in her home.

FYI ~ Mary Dyer, one of the Boston Martyrs, was a follower of Anne Hutchinson's teaching.

Anne Hutchinson quotes ~
• “But now having seen Him which is invisible I fear not what man can do unto me.”
• “How did Abraham know that it was God that bid him offer his son, being a breach of the sixth commandment?”
• “If any come to my house to be instructed in the ways of God what rule have I to put them away? Do you think it not lawful for me to teach women and why do you call me to teach the court?”
• “One may preach a covenant of grace more clearly than another... But when they preach a covenant of works for salvation, that is not truth.”

William R. Inge

William R. Inge
b. 6-6-1860; Yorkshire, England
d. 2-24-1954

Clergyman William Ralph Inge, noted for his articles, lectures and sermons, as well as over 35 books, is best known for his works on Plotinus and neoplatonic philosophy, and on Christian mysticism.

William R. Inge quotes ~
• “No word in our language — not even "Socialism"— has been employed more loosely than ‘Mysticism’. … The history of the word begins in close connexion with the Greek mysteries. A mystic is one who has been, or is being, initiated into some esoteric knowledge of Divine things, about which he must keep his mouth shut… ”
• “Worry is interest paid on a trouble before it is due.”
• “We have enslaved the rest of the animal creation, and have treated our distant cousins in fur and feathers so badly that beyond doubt, if they were able to formulate a religion, they would depict the Devil in human form.”
• “Civilization is a disease which is almost invariably fatal.”
• “There are two kinds of fools: one says, "This is old, therefore it is good"; the other says, "This is new, therefore it is better.”

10: I was in the Spirit on the Lord's day, and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet,
11: Saying, I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last: and, What thou seest, write in a book, and send it unto the seven churches which are in Asia; unto Ephesus, and unto Smyrna, and unto Pergamos, and unto Thyatira, and unto Sardis, and unto Philadelphia, and unto Laodicea.

• “Boredom is the root of all evil - the despairing refusal to be oneself.”
• “Once you label me you negate me.”
• “Purity of heart is to will one thing.”
• “Take away paradox from the thinker and you have a professor.”
• “What is a poet? An unhappy person who conceals profound anguish in his heart but whose lips are so formed that as sighs and cries pass over them they sound like beautiful music.”
• “The function of prayer is not to influence God, but rather to change the nature of the one who prays.”
