Other Aspects of John Hus’s Attitude to the Mystery of Eucharist in the Context of Jacob’s Consubstantialism and Utraquism
In this study devoted to other aspects of Hus’s attitude to the mystery of Eucharist, the author extends his results presented in the previous article, which was mainly focused on the orthodoxy of the Bethlehem preacher’s teaching. The respect to the truth demands to discuss also Hus’s non-conformist preaching on the level of “the Service of the Word”. There can be found some disputable points, the most controversial of which is the claim that grave sinners should be regarded as heretics. After that, the author discusses the consubstantialism of Jacob of Mies, and, on the basis of the observations, he concludes that he cannot univocally condemn Jacob’s attitudes as heretical. In the third point, he focuses on the Hus’s role in the so called Wilsnack Affair. In the concluding part of the study, the dramatic attitude of the Bethlehem preacher to the offering Communion under both kinds to the laity is presented.
