    This book reconstructs John Wyclif's whole discourse on dominion in community by rereading his notorious works, and restores his fame and integrity as a serious and original thinker, 'Christ's lawyer, ' and the law giver of the English nation at the dawn of Reformation. Category: History The French Of Medieval England.   He sets Wyclif against the discussion of his own time and finds that his opponents have consistently painted him in a more radical light than he defined himself.

    John Wyclif's denial of the doctrine of transubstantiation, his strong belief in the sole authority of Scripture, and his views on the right of the laity to confiscate Church property brought him under attack by the ecclesiastical leaders of his day. The name was taken from the Book of Revelation and indicates the strong eschatological character of the Czech reform movement. One of the ironies of church history is that frequently those who have the most acute sense of the future reign of God—of living in the “last days"—are precisely those who invest themselves with purpose and energy.
