Kostel svatého Martina ve zdi (Church of St. Martin-in-the-Wall)

Kostel svatého Martina ve zdi (Church of St. Martin-in-the-Wall) Review

It was here in 1414 that Holy Communion was first given to the Bohemian laity in the form of both bread and wine. (The Catholic custom of the time dictated only bread would be offered to the masses, with wine reserved for priests and clergy.) From then on, the chalice came to symbolize the Hussite movement. The church is sometimes open for evening concerts, held often in summer, or for Sunday service, but that's the only way to see the rather plain interior.
