Nemez, Frederic

Nemez, Frederic a noted Waldensian prelate, flourished in the first half of the 15th century in Bohemia. He was consecrated priest in the convent of the Bohemian capital, September 4, 1433, by bishop Nicholas Philibert, a legate of the Council of Basle. In 1434 Nemez, together with another priest, also a Waldensian, and consecrated at the same time with himself, was sent to Basle, where the council was at open variance with the pope; and in full convention of the clergy they were consecrated bishops by prelates of the Church of Rome. It was done at the instance of the Calixtines, SEE HUSSITES, whom the council was anxious to propitiate and please. Thus the Waldensians in Bohemia secured the episcopal succession. Nemez died near the middle of the 15th century. See Butler, Ch. Hist. 2:349.
