Translation seems pretty good, but article should be renamed John of Rokycany, since that is the name of the village (Rokycan is a different grammatical form). I'll leave it someone who is more experienced than me to do that and make a redirect and/or change links to here from elsewhere. (Visit in response to request for comment on translation).

The Assembly of Kutná Hora[edit]

On October 4, 1441 he convened an assembly at Kutná Hora, where the
fundamentals of Hussite belief were laid down for all. In the year 1442 he
made his peace with Jan z Příbrami. In 1444, the courts found in favour of
the Taborites, who still refused to comply with the unanimous policy and
the Tabor doctrine was decried.
  1. ) "Laid down"? It sounds like he single-handedly went off and said "This is what all the Hussites (must??) believe". Perhaps a bit more explanation of what the purpose of this assembly was?
  2. ) What was his dispute with Jan z Pribrami?
  3. ) What courts? One assumes the assembly...but it's an assumption that the assembly was also a court, and the intervening comment about Pribrami breaks the link.
  4. ) The court found in favour of the Taborites, but their doctrine was decried?
  5. ) If the Taborites refused to comply with the policy (which policy? The "fundamentals of hussite belief"?), how can it be a unanimous policy?

1) Laid down? Exactly ... this was in the effect the Czech national legislation, so their resolution was a law of the land.
2) dispute with Jan of Příbram. Reading http://cs.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jan_z_P%C5%99%C3%ADbrami it seems that Jan of Příbram was a very conservative Catholic-leaning Hussite theologian, but after this reconciliation he was arguing for Jan of Rokycana to be officially promulgated as a Prague archbishop (which would be according to the The Compact of Basel what Rome promised to do).
3) fixed
4) they refused to comply with that declaration of the assembly, which as I've described was the law of the land. Hussites are not exactly the same as Taborites. The later were the most radical branch of whole Hussite movement, and the assembly accepted the middle-way rules as the law of the land and tried to stabilize the situation in the Czech Kingdom based on this resolution (which was in agreement with The Compact of Basel, so there was a hope of the reconciliation with Rome as well; after all, some Czech Catholic nobles were participating in the assembly as well).
This needs proper citation and formulation to be included in the article itself.
