Latzembock, Henry De
Latzembock, Henry De, a native of Bohemia, lived in the latter part of the 14th and first part of the 15th centuries. He was a friend of the reformer John Huss, whom, in connection with two other friends, he was appointed to conduct in safety to the Council of Constance. He stood very high in the favor of the emperor Sigismund, and appealed to him in behalf of the reformer. After the condemnation and burning of Huss he was himself suspected of heresy, was summoned before the council, and required to abjure the doctrines of his friend and approve of his condemnation. With this requisition he complied, being more intent on his own safety and advancement at court than anxious for reform. After this period little information concerning him is attainable. — Gillett, Life and Times of John Huss, 1:352-354, 386; 2:28, 260.
