Summary/Abstract: This paper presents reflection over the significance of the sexcentenary as John Hus was burn to death, wherein the author sees the challenge for conversion which consists in multi-dimensional understanding of the history. For all that the author defends predominant orthodox doctrine in John Hus teaching but on the other side also the inadequacy in his preaching activity. This kind of drama is sharply dilemmatic because absolute accent on personal belief should make for anarchy, while contrary extreme i.e. dictate of the institution can lead toward the totality. Basically, every person is in this situation, although not necessary so extremely tense situations as Czech reformer.
