This 1899 study, which was Trevelyan's doctoral dissertation, is less a biography of the English cleric who led the 14th century Lollard movement than a general picture of English society, politics, and religion at the time, focusing on Wycliffe as a central figure. Specifically, Trevelyan describes a poor class of people, a corrupt church, a powerless king, among other issues.

About the Author
George Macaulay Trevelyan (1876-1962) was a British historian who eschewed objectivity in favor of passionate engagement in his works, which reflected his personal commitment to Whig and Liberal principles (his great-uncle was the staunch Whig, Thomas Babington Macaulay). Among his best-known books are Garibaldi and the Making of Italy (1911), British History in the Nineteenth Century (1922), and An Autobiography and Other Essays (1949).
