Utraquist confession, printed in the Prague printing house of Jan Moravus on 22nd December 1513, is a brief and basic summary of doctrine of the Utraquist Church shortly before the outbreak of the European Reformation. It was created within negotiations between the Utraquist party and Roman Catholic Church members in 1512–1513, which headed towards the renewal of Prague archbishopric. Its task was primarily to defend traditional Utraquist particularities in matters of Scriptural and church authority, communion under both kinds by all the baptized and also of sacred paintings. Its probable authors were the contemporary representatives of the Utraquist Church and the University of Prague, primarily its administrator Pavel Žatecký and Master Václav Koranda Jr. The text documents the survival of Hussite traditions in post-compactata Utraquism and expresses Utraquists' willingness not to give up their "revealed truth".
