Codex Codex entry[edit | edit source]

Sbinco (Zbyněk) Zajíc of Haseburg, the son of William Zajíc of Hasenburg, was Prague Archbishop between 1403 and 1411, a member of the court of Wenceslas IV, the Provost of Mělník and a military leader. Although he was a supporter of Jan Hus at the outset of the 15th century, from 1407 onwards he was in public opposition to him. On 16 July 1410, he even burnt Wycliffe’s writings and placed John Hus under an interdict. This met with protests not only from the citizens of Prague, but also from King Wenceslas IV himself, who demanded that the interdict be withdrawn. Sbinco rejected the demand and subsequently remained absent from the country for several years

His lack of education earned him the popular moniker 'Bishop Alphabet'

His body lies in St. Vitus' Cathedral in Prague.
