The Moravian Church is a Protestant denomination founded in the 14th century by Jan Hus. Hus objected to some of the practices of the Roman Catholic Church and wanted to return the church in Bohemia and Moravia to what were the practices in these territories when it had been Eastern Orthodox: liturgy in the language of the people (i.e. Czech), having lay people receive communion in both kinds (bread and wine) , married priests, and eliminating indulgences and the idea of Purgatory.
