Studies in the Transmission of Wyclif's Writings

Front Cover
Ashgate, 2008 - History - 6 pages
The papers in this collection look at aspects of the dissemination of Wyclif's works and ideas: the organization and revision of his works, the techniques devised to identify and make accessible his multifarious writings, the attempts of the orthodox clerical establishment to destroy them, through to the fortunes of his texts in the Reformation period. Manuscripts written in England and those copied abroad, mostly in Bohemia, are considered. Although most of the papers have been published previously, a new edition of the important Hussite catalogue of Wyclif's writings is provided, and three lengthy sections contribute new material and additions and corrections to previous listings of Wyclif manuscripts.
