Item Description...
John Wyclif has alternatively been called hero and heretic, reformer and radical, guardian and gadfly. But the true tale of this most controversial of late-medieval Englishmen is far richer and more complex.In this first major biography of John Wyclif in nearly a century, G. R. Evans employs recent research to present a fresh, focused portrait of this pivotal historical figure. In doing so, she strips away the layers of legend that have obscured our view of the real Wyclif and places him within the features of his actual historical landscape.That landscape is the world of fourteenth-century Oxford, where Wyclif spent the majority of his life. Evans, one of today's leading historians of the era, vividly re-creates the scenery of this great medieval university town with clarity and detail, providing a comprehensive view of life and learning within its walls. It was here that Wyclif earned his reputation as one of the most learned and significant scholars of his day. And it was here that he developed his views regarding the Bible, the sacraments, ecclesiastical authority and political power--views that led to his eventual condemnation by the church.Informative, dramatic and compelling, this masterful biography of John Wyclif is required reading for all lovers of history--student and scholar alike.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Not an even-handed study of the character  Jan 14, 2007
Two thoughts occurred to me as I read G. R. Evans biography on Wyclif:
either she was so determined to present her subject in a way that did not seem biased that she swung too far the other way, or she simply dislikes her character. In nearly every instance where she must surmise or assume a conclusion about Wyclif (which, by the way, involves a better portion of the book) she portrays him in the worst light. He does not receive the benefit of the doubt as other individuals do. I felt myself questioning the credibility of the entire work as I began to see the pattern of conscious bias in her deductions about Wyclif and his actions. She did go to extraordinary lengths however to include a great deal of detail about the events concurrent to Wyclif's life that had an affect on him and his contemporaries and weaved them into the story with skill.
