Orebites

The Orebites (Czech: Orebité) were followers of the Hussites in Eastern Bohemia. The founders took part in the procession on Mount Oreb, near T?ebechovice pod Orebem. Later, most noble supporters belonged to the East Bohemian church known as the Bohemian Brethren.

The ideological founder of the Orebites was the priest Ambro? Hradecký. Leaders included Hynek Kru?ina of Lichtenburg and Divi? Bo?ek of Miletínek, the captain of the Hussites in Eastern and Central Bohemia. The Orebites were instrumental in the burning of the Benedictine monastery in Mnichovo Hradi?t? in the early summer of 1420, and in autumn, they supported the rest of the Hussites at the Battle of Vy?ehrad. In 1423, they merged with the Sirotci of Jan ?i?ka.
