Prague (Czech, Praha) (population in 2007, 1,204,897), capital since 1919 of Czechoslovakia and since 1993 of the Czech Republic, the cen­ter of the Hussite movement of the 15th century. In 1521-1522 Thomas Müntzer visited the city and on 1 and 25 November 1521, announced his peculiar religious views in his "Manifesto of Prague." Volkmar Fischer, an Anabaptist of Hesse, was im­prisoned at Prague in 1532. Julius Lober's list of martyrs (1531) names four martyrs beheaded in Prague, and the list of the Geschicht-Buch names eleven by 1542. The archives of the Ministry of the Interior contain some source materials on Anabaptist history. No Anabaptist congregation was ever es­tablished here.
