Baker, Robin. “The Hungarian-speaking Hussites of Moldavia and Two English Episodes in their History.” Central Europe 4.1 (May 2006): 3-24. [According to the abstract, “The article considers the origin of the Hungarian-speaking Hussites in Moldavia and the factors that led to their growth, together with the nature of their beliefs. The developments that led to their eventual demise are discussed. The evidence that the prominent English Wycliffe and a leader of the Hussite movement in Bohemia, Peter Payne, stayed among them between 1440 and 1443 is also reviewed. The author concludes by exploring when the Hussites ceased to exist as a discrete cultural community in Moldavia.”]

Knoll, Paul W. “‘The Worst Heretic’: Andrzej Gałka of Dobczyn in the Academic and Ecclesiastical Context of Mid-15th Century Krakow and Poland.” Polish Review 54.1 (2009): 3-29. [“The article discusses Andrzej Gałka, a leading faculty member at the University of Kraków in Poland and a canon of St. Florian’s church in Kleparz. The author explains that Gałka was a respected scholar until he became involved with religious heresy. A history of the University of Kraków and biographical information on Gałka are included. The author talks about an ecclesiastical controversy Gałka was involved in concerning the Hussite Christian movement. Subjects of the article also include Gałka’s study of the teachings of John Wyclif and letters written by Gałka.”]
Steuer, Jennifer. “Religiöse Strömungen der Zeit im Ackermann aus Böhmen: Johann Wiclef und sein Einfluss auf das mittelalterliche Streitgespräch.” Neophilologus 93.3 (July, 2009): 471-479. [Johannes von Tepl’s dialogue between the “Ackermann” (Plowman) and death deals with such questions as the proper way of living and the relationship between men and God. This paper concentrates on the question of how far the “Ackermann”-dialogue is affected by the religious trends of the time, particularly the Pre-Reformation movement in Bohemia. The focus is on the character John Wyclif. A comparison of his theses and Johannes von Tepl’s disputation demonstrates that the dialogue between the “Ackermann” and death shows Wyclif’s influence. This is supported because the writer disregards the invocation of the saints and the worship of the Virgin Mary in his disputation. In addition, he uses John Wyclif’s key term–the right to property–as an interpretation of the right to possess one’s own life.]
