Photo: Jon Hus Monument Old Town Square Prague Czech Republic

The Art Nouveau monument dedicated to Jon Hus is located in the Old Town Square in the Old Town District of Prague. This is a free standing sculpture erected in 1915. Jon Hus is an important man to the history of Prague.

The Jon Hus Monument that sits in the Old Town Square in the Old District of Prague is a reminder of a man who was very important to the history of this city. Jon Hus lived between 1372 and 1415 and was a religious thinker and philosopher and master at Charles University. He was a strong contributor and figure in the Protestant teachings in Prague and he had extensive followers, however his views made him an enemy of the Catholic church, who declared him a heretic and he was excommunicated in 1411. Jon Hus believed that sermons should be conducted in the local language so that everyone can understand them, and not in Latin like the church currently did at that time.

His monument contains Hussite (what his followers were called) and Protestants, who were exiled 200 years after Jon Hus. The monument also contains a young mother as that is a symbol of national rebirth. 1915, when the monument was erected, was the 500th anniversary of his death at the stake; it was mostly paid for by donations.

Since this monument has been erected, it has become a symbol in the city for protest. It was a symbol of anti-Russian rule in 1915, and then a symbol of anti-Communist rule a few decades later.
