Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Give[s] an unusually full set of insights into the many-sided achievements of the man....For historians this book...is probably among the half-dozen most useful works on Wyclif."—American Historical Review

"Significantly advance[s] the considerable twentieth century body of scholarly work on Wyclif. They also demonstrate with new clarity the brilliance and relevance of Wyclif's thought."—Restoration Quarterly

"A worthwhile [book] to anyone with an interest in later medieval philosophy."—International Philosophical Quarterly

"Kenny has performed a valuable service in distinguishing the unorthodox and politically controversial elements in Wyclif's theology and philosophy from the very substantial body of his writings that stands firmly in the orthodox Catholic tradition."—Studies in the Age of Chaucer

"Demonstrates the vigor of current scholarship about one of the greatest of all Englishmen."—History: Reviews of New Books
