Description The sermon with central theme Diliges Dominum Deum was preached by Jan Hus as his first synodical sermon at the synod of Prague archdiocese on the occasion of St. Lucas day on the 18th of October 1405. This text, written in the form of thematic preaching, is concerned with the usual problems of the contemporary Church, especially with the sins of adultery and simony. The sermon is significant for its opening part, in which Jan Hus describes his ecclesiological opinions based on John Wycliffe's views. This occurence of Wycliffe's ecclesiology is one of the earliest evidences of his influence on Jan Hus' concept of the Church. The aim of this paper is to introduce the sermon Diliges and the context, in which it was preached. Emphasis is put not only on content, but also on the form of the sermon.
