The article analyses the short treatise on the four senses of Scripture (De quadruplici sensu) preserved in several fifteenth-century manuscripts, which is tentatively ascribed to Jan Hus. The author surveys the known copies of the work (including the newly discovered ones), presents information that emerged from the preparation of its edition and examines the content and formal side of the treatise, its sources and relation to the previous tradition of interpretation of the four senses of Scripture. She also sketches the literary context of the work and explains its connection to preaching.
