Last of the Schoolmen, first of the English Reformers – John Wyclif

John Wyclif

The first day of the New Year seems an appropriate moment to post a book about a man who marked another kind of transition: from the age of the Schoolmen to the age of the reformers of the Church. This public domain book by Lewis Sergeant was digitised from a copy a copy held in Spurgeon’s College library.
