Hussites were followers of Jan Hus, who in early 15c Bohemia initiated a movement for the reform of the universal Church. They failed in their main purpose but, together and in various sects, they anticipated the 16c Reformation by demanding the moral reform of the clergy, free preaching of the Word of God, and the availability of the Eucharist for all believers in two species or kinds (i.e. bread and wine).
