Adalbertus Ranconis de Ericinio (Czech: Vojtěch Raňkův z Ježova) (circa 1320 – August 15, 1388) was a Czech theologian and philosopher. In 1355 he was appointed a rector of the University of Paris. He wrote the Tractatus de communione, a treatise on confession and the offering of the eucharist by laymen. He is also known for introducing the ideas of John Wycliff to Bohemia.[1]

In 1378, at the funeral of Charles IV, Holy Roman Emperor, Albertus Ranconis declared the emperor pater patriae of the Bohemian nation.
