Petr Chelčický 1390 –1460, Christian reformer and philosopher, spent most of his life here in the village Chelčice. He  rejected all forms of violence and, in accordance with the New Testament, regarded spiritual struggle as the only way of improving human life and society. He condemned the abuses of wordly life, particulary in the cities, and regardet agriculture as the only meaningful activity. During his life he gathered around himself a circle of followers and his ideas became the philosophical basis of the famous Brethre Union, whose last bishop was Comenius.
