One of the eminent leaders of the brethren was Lukas of Prague, who emphasised grace as opposed to works and purged the bohemians from legalism. This 30 years before Luther. But more interesting is his search for apostolic christianity in italy and the balkans. Around constantinople and the balkans he failed to find any such communities (apparently the bogomils were already converted to islam or gone)
During this difficult time, Luke and three other members were sent to find a Christian community “fully keeping and living the “apostolic faith.” Luke travelled to through the Balkans and covered the Turkish lands in Europe and Asia but did not find any such communities.
And was disappointed with the waldenses, who had become slothful and had stopped evangelising at the time of his visit. This proves that the inquisitions and propaganda had worked and the movements were driven underground, no having little societal impact and power. Below-glimpse of his views and exploits.
