    Description: The obverse of this medal presents the right side of Hus's face in profile ("Credo unam esse ecclesiam sanctam Catholicam. Io. Hus Anno A. Christo [condem]nato 1415" ["I believe there is one holy Catholic church. John Hus, convicted in the year of Christ 1415"]). The reverse depicts Jerome tied to a stake and surrounded by faggots ("Centum revolutis annis Deo respondebitis et mihi. Hieronim[us] Anno A. Cristo [condem]natus 1416" ["You all will answer to God and me in one hundred returning years. Jerome, convicted in the year of Christ 1416"]). The center of the reverse contains the word "co[n]demnatus" ["convicted"]. Hus and Jerome appear on the medal as two prophets, sent by God against the papacy. According to Foxe, Jerome prophesied prior to his death that God would hold Rome accountable one hundred years following Jerome's martyrdom. Foxe interprets Jerome's statement as predicting the arrival of Martin Luther a century later. These paired woodcuts appear twice the second (1570), third (1576), and fourth (1583) editions. Luborsky and Ingram 11223/22, 11223/23. JPEG file (2.74 MB).
