Bohemian Adamites

Nude Christian Anarchists who pillaged the local towns

15th century

In the 15th century, Bohemia was a center of religious dissent. One group, split from the Taborites, adopted beliefs and practices nearly identical to the Adamites of the early church, who were a primitivist group known for their nudism, free love, anarchism, and rejection of private property. After several members were executed, they relocated to a remote island, surviving by pillaging local communities. After several months, the island was stormed, and every member was killed.
