Über diesen Titel

Inhaltsangabe:

Twelve papers presented by Michael Wilks between 1965 and his death in 1999, two of which are published here for the first time. Wilks' research into Wyclif and 14th-century England was very much rooted in Wyclif's own prolific writings, a perspective that differed from the more traditional Reformation viewpoint. The papers trace Wyclif's early history in northern England and Oxford and ask why the established and favoured civil servant turned against Edward III and Richard II and died a traitor and heretic. Wilks' detailed analysis of Wyclif's Latin texts, with numerous extracts and copious notes, presents Wyclif's demands for reform and his determined campaign against the church and the religious orders. Wyclif's name was inevitably linked with the Peasants' Revolt, even though it attacked his patron and former defender John of Gaunt, but even in exile he continued his fight with attacks on both the Schism popes. The essays are the result of 35 years of evolving ideas and opinions but all reflect the great learning and energy of Wilks' scholarship.

Review:

This volume of collected papers reminds reader that, were it not for his untimely passing in 1999, Wilks would have taught us many more things about Wyclif and late-medieval regal and ecclesiastical politics. Yet there is plenty here that teaches, inspires, and provokes, and Anne Husdon is to be thanked for seeing this convenient volume to fruition ...It will supply scholars new to the subject with a basis upon which to proceed in thinking about Wyclif and Wycliffism within late-medieval regal and ecclesiastical affairs in England. It will prove to other scholars that one absolutely must consider the former to understand more fully the latter' (Andrew Cole Speculum, 2003)
