      Just wondering if anyone here can help with some research into two
      individuals:

      (1) Robert Anglic'an ("the Englishman"), 13th Bishop of Olomouc/Olmutz
      (1201-1240), royal chancellor under Pr'emysl Otakar I, started out as a
      Cistercian monk at Nepomuk in West Bohemia, attended the Fourth Lateran
      Council in Rome. Reformed various Cistercian houses in Bohemia and Moravia
      and founded other religious establishments.

      (2) Peter Payne, a.k.a. Petr Englis' (English), sometime principal of St
      Edmund's College, Oxford, a Wycliffite, fled to Bohemia in 1417 and became a
      prominent Hussite theologian. Admitted to the faculty of arts at Charles
      University in 1417/18, and spoke for the Hussites at the Council of Basel.
      Was still active in the 1420's, when he was leaning towards the less
      conciliatory, Taborite view.

      Can anyone add any details at all about either of these two characters? All
      information would be a great help!
