Because he proclaimed  the abuses of the Roman Catholic Church in the 15th century, John Hus was arrested and thrown into a dark hole at the opening of a sewer drain.  He endured eight months in that filthy place.  Hus was tortured and ultimately burned at the stake on July 6, 1415.  Prior to his brutal death, Hus reportedly said, “Today you are burning a goose (Hus means goose in Czech), a however, a hundred years from now, you will be able to hear a swan sing, you will not burn it, you will have to listen to him.”

Semper Reformanda!
