9781331862260: The Life Times of Master John Hus (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from The Life Times of Master John Hus

Madam,

You have asked me to write a few words by way of introduction to the new edition of The Life and Times of Master John Hus by your late husband, Francis Count Lützow. It is with pleasure that I comply with your request. I regard it as a special distinction to be acting as Czecho-Slovak Minister in London at the time when a new edition of Count Lützow's book on Hus is being issued for the purpose of acquainting the English reading public with that important epoch in the history of the Czecho-Slovak nation, the outstanding representative of which is Master John Hus, who fought so nobly for freedom of conviction. It was his martyrdom which gave birth to that abhorrence of oppression, but also to that unshaken belief in the final victory of justice and truth which accompanied our nation through centuries of suffering, until, having attained their liberty and independence, they could proudly inscribe the motto "Pravda vítezí" (Truth prevails) upon the escutcheon of their own State.

I cannot of course presume to pronounce any judgment on a work whose value has long since been acknowledged by those best qualified to appreciate its merits, but I think that in my capacity as representative of the Czecho-Slovak State in Great Britain I may venture to express the feelings of deep gratitude which are cherished by every Czech heart towards the author's life-work, devoted as it was to furthering the interests of the Czech cause in this country. When the book first appeared in the year 1909, nobody could have surmised that the dawn of our liberty was so soon to scatter the dark clouds which, in the concluding words of Count Lützow's History of Bohemia, seemed to surround the future of our country.
