Hussites. God's Warriors. Trailer promoting new exibition



The State Archaeological Museum, Warsaw, Poland, opens its new exhibition "Hussites. God's Warriors".

The Hussites were a Christian movement following the teachings of Czech reformer Jan Hus. After the Council of Constance lured Jan Hus in with a letter of indemnity, and then the state put him to death on 6 July 1415, the Hussites fought a series of wars (1420–1434) for their religious and political cause.

The Hussite Wars, also called the Bohemian Wars involved the military actions against and amongst the followers of Jan Hus in Bohemia in the period 1419 to circa 1434. The Hussite Wars were notable for the extensive use of early hand-held gunpowder weapons such as hand cannons. The Hussite warriors were basically infantry, and their many defeats of larger armies with heavily armoured knights helped effect the infantry revolution. In the end, it was an inconclusive war.


On behalf of the State Archaeological Museum, Virtual Heritage created a animated 3D movie describing elements of doctrine, tactics, equipment and deployment of "God's Warriors.
