Example text

Such praise from chroniclers who hated Wyclif is surprising, but Wyclif ’s reputation for learning probably rests more on the volume of his output rather than the content of his thought; Courtenay, Schools, p. 355. 98 28 andrew e. larsen Wyclif, for his part, must have seen Gaunt as the closest thing to a champion of his theories that he was likely to find. If he sincerely believed that Gaunt was a reformer, he must have been deeply disappointed by the end of his life. 102 But his support for Wyclif was not completely due to politics.

Why did Gaunt provide Wyclif with so much support? If Wyclif and Gaunt had no arrangement before February of 1377, how are we to explain Wyclif ’s summons to the council and Gaunt’s subsequent decision to intervene in the matter of Westbury, followed soon by Wyclif ’s decision to begin preaching his political theories in London?
