The Emperor broke his sacred word and sacrificed Hus to his enemies.

Shan't beg your Hus—I mean Mr. Paine's pardon; he ought to thank me for the compliment.
Sigismund also again urged Hus to submit, and said, in effect: "Recant now, or die."
Hus was next charged with saying, "that he was and would be a Fourth Person in the Trinity."
Sigismund hounded on the prelates to make an end of Hus, even if he recanted.
Hus had been disposed of, and again the papacy had risen triumphant.
What right, asked Hus, had the Pope to claim the "power of the keys?"
