Life and Work of John Wycliffe by Dyson Hague

John Wycliffe

Over twenty-five years ago I wrote a short life of Wycliffe, as an historical study, taking pains to secure, as far as was possible, all the literature upon the subject that was available. Since that time important additions have been made to the fund of Wycliffe literature and, in bringing out this enlarged edition, I have endeavoured to secure all the light that could be thrown upon the character and career of this extraordinary man. The more I have investigated the efforts of his life and the sources of his energy and principles the more I have been impressed with the magnitude of his labours, and the obligation of England, England’s Church, and English Christians to the man who, over :five and a half centuries ago, stood forth as the protagonist of all those great principles which have made England great and the Reformation mighty.
