Church of Our Lady of the Snows in Prague

On 25 February 1419 King Václav IV allowed the Hussites to hold services, preach, sing Czech hymns, and distribute communion under both kinds in the church of Our Lady of the Snows and in two other churches near the border between the Old and New Towns, St. Ambrose and St. Benedict. This course of events meant that the church of Our Lady of the Snows became the centre of the most radical Hussites, and the turbulent preacher Jan Želivský, originally a Premonstratensian priest from the monastery in Želiv, stablished himself there.
