Hussite -Research/Inspiration


Jan Hus (1369-1415)

The original motive for the playing cards have been chosen because of the reformer. Introduced improvements into medieval Czech language, such as the diacritic including the “hook” háček (ě,š,č,ř,ž), the “dot” above letters for strong accent, as well as the acute accent to mark long vowels (á,é,í,ó,ú), in order to represent each sound by a single symbol. He was a key predecessor to Protestantism. First church reformer.


He was burned at the stakes and after his death there were Hussite wars.


Overall information about that time, place, language, art, persons as well first edition cards.
