The name of John Wyclif is surrounded by mythology. According to G.R. Evans, he got both credit and blame for much more than he actually did or probably intended. The ideas which became associated with his name had an immense influence and their effects were felt in the sequence of events which eventually led to the Reformation. This biography takes a fresh look at Wyclif the man and his preoccupations and achievements. Areas oovered include: Wyclif's origins; Wyclif at Oxford; academic squabbles leading to serious dissent; Wyclif the writer, preacher and lecturer; Wyclif the mature campaigner against abuse of power and privilege; Wyclif on the sacraments; condemnation of Wyclif; Wyclif in exile in his parish; the Bible in English; popular religion; the road to Reformation.
