Peter Chelčický: The Net of Faith

Peter Chelčický was the earliest writer of the Reformation to promote nonresistance, predating Erasmus of Rotterdam and Menno Simons by 100 years and playing a key role in the founding of the Moravian Church. This is his most mature work, written in about 1443. In it he condemns the abuses of both the Roman Church and the Hussite Protestants and expounds on his own independent true-to-the-gospel theology. This is the only English translation of this monumental work but, sadly, it is incomplete. We can arrange a tax deductible donation if you are interested in contributing toward a new and complete translation.

Read it as |html| or |pdf|

Thanks to and Tom Lock for this e-book.
