Jakoubek of Stříbro, the most significant personality of the early Bohemian reformation next to Jan Hus, preached his sermon Qui non diligit me (known also as Sermo contra graduatos) in the 1420s. The sermon, preserved in two manuscripts in the National library in Prague, has only partially been edited. The tract (written between 1409 and 1417) criticizes the graduates, clerics and members of the university community for not devoting themselves fully to the law of God (which, to Jakoubek, is the highest norm of all actions) and for preferring secular knowledge, which he calls human inventions.
