Its Worth a Thought...

 

La Trobe

 

Have you ever wondered how a university in Victoria got to have a French name?

The easy and superficial answer is that it was named after Mr La Trobe, but there is also a city, river, valley, mountain and a number of streets named after La Trobe. So who was he?

The story begins over 500 years ago when a man by the name of Jan Hus (John Huss) in what is now the modern-day Czech Republic began to object to some of the beliefs and practices that had crept into Christianity. In the mid 1400s the work of Hus developed extensively in one region of the Czech Republic known as Moravia and soon the people were known as members of the Moravian church. They believed in and placed a great deal of value on humility, mission work, music and connecting with all other Christians.

The Moravian Church predated the Protestant Reformation by a century, but in the early 1600s the Habsburg emperors forced all these people to either convert back to the state endorsed church or be expelled from the country. Many of the people from Moravia fled to England and settled in West Yorkshire.
