Popis The paper deals with Dialogus volatilis, a conversation between a goose and a sparrow written in the 15th century. Both birds represent two Czech scholars, the church reformer John Hus and his opponent, the monk Stephen from Dolany. The first one was a big critic of the moral conditions in contemporary Christian Church, even thought he himself was a priest. The latter belonged to the Carthusian Order. I focus on the introductions of their speeches within the dialogue and analyse the way they address each other. Does Stephen of Dolany show any tendency to dishonour the criticized opponent by the vocabulary he puts to Hus' mouth? Does he want to provide the reader with a better account of himself? Or does he try to be objective? These questions should be answered with help of some examples from the G 12 Cerr II 209 manuscript, which seems to be Stephen's autograph.
