Comment[edit]

in 1915 in opposition to Austrian rule, NOT Russian. Indeed, the Russian rule/domination was some 33 years later. This is very interesting in that there must have been a level of tolerance for such a huge monument to an anti-catholic figure to be erected in a very public square. Up until 1918 the monument coexisted with a statue of St. Mary - the 2 being separated by perhaps only 50 meters. Was the removal of the Madonna a symbolic action to show that the Austrian-Hung. empire no longer held sway? Nevertheless even today the Hus monument is in the shadow of the imposing yet graceful Tyn Cathedral some 80 meters away. 83.208.85.3 (talk) 20:35, 31 October 2010 (UTC) lombardi3@comcast.net

Concerning the Virgin Mary column see cs:Mariánský sloup (Staroměstské náměstí) (Google Translate does rather good job on it). And no, there is nothing wrong with the Church of Our Lady before Týn, it was the main Utraquist church in Prague for almost two hundred years (except that the halo of the Virgin Mary on that church was made out of the golden chalice which stood in its place).
