Overview

In The Life and Opinions of John de Wycliffe (2 vols.), author Robert Vaughan provides a firm foundation for understanding John Wycliffe and the age that preceded him. Vaughan shares historical context, describes Wycliffe’s theology, and draws connections between the doctrines found in Wycliffe’s work and the Reformation of the sixteenth century.

Volume 1 focuses on three key phases of church history: the first, relating to the rise and character of the papal system; the second, to the state of Protestant doctrine in Europe from the fall of the empire to the opening of the fourteenth century; and the last, to the ecclesiastical establishment, and the state of society in England before the appearance of Wycliffe. Vaughan also offers valuable observations on the state of the church between the death of Wycliffe and the appearance of Luther. In volume 2, Vaughan offers a critical summary of Wycliffe’s writings.

The introduction to these volumes consists of three chapters; the first, relating to the rise and character of the papal system; the second, to the state of the Protestant doctrine in Europe, from the fall of the empire to the opening of the fourteenth century; and the last, to the Ecclesiastical Establishment, and the state of society in England previous to the appearance of Wycliffe. Vaughan offers valuable observations on the state of the church during the interval between the death of Wycliffe and the appearance of Luther.

Every student of Wycliffe’s period must build on Dr. Vaughan’s foundation. He remains the great authority upon the subject, and, as Professor Lechler says, his works must always take a foremost place as the basis of all accurate knowledge of Wycliffe.

The British Quarterly Review

A work of great learning, interest, and eloquence, and deserves to be read attentively by every student of modern history.

London Weekly Review

While it will be highly useful to the general reader, it will deserve the attention of the more erudite and curious student. It is much to the author’s praise, that he has devoted a very considerable portion of time and labor to the diligent and unceasing study of the Reformer’s writings in their original copies.

Athenaum

Mr. Vaughan could not easily have chosen a more important or more impressive subject; nor could he have set about his task in a more business-like and effective way.
