Excerpt from Studies in Church History, Vol. 3: Centuries XV.-XVI
In the autumn of 1412, Huss was again excommunicated, and Wenceslaus allowed the publication of the decree. The heresiarch appealed to Christ; and retiring to Krakowec, composed his treatise on The Church. In the meantime his errors were being propagated throughout Poland by Jerome. The German throne was then occupied by Sigismund (2), a brother and heir of Wenceslaus, who, sincerely desirous of peace among his future subjects of Bohemia, agreed with the latter to have Huss tried at the coming Council of Constance. Huss made no objections to this project; and returning to Prague, he affixed placards on the city walls informing the citizens that he was ready to answer before the Council for all his teachings, and that if convicted of error, he was also ready to suffer merited punishment.
On Oct. 18, Sigismund signed a safe-conduct for Huss, guaranteeing him protection on his way to the Council (3). Abundantly supplied with money by his friends, accompanied by many of these, and protected by three Bohemian knights and their retinues, the heresiarch traversed Germany; and on Nov. 4, the Pontiff was informed that Huss demanded his protection. The Pope replied: "Even though Huss had murdered my own brother, I would not allow any injustice to be done to him in Constance." The Pontiff even modified the effects of the excommunication under which the innovator labored, so far as to permit communication with him. Huss, however, manifested anything but a proper spirit; in spite of his censures, he frequently celebrated Mass, and preached to his attendants. On Nov. 28 he was cited to appear before a congregation of cardinals, and after some hesitation he obeyed; protesting to their Eminences that he would abjure any error of which he would be convicted.
