John Wycliffe

12 Views

John Wycliffe died on December 31, 1384. In his lifetime, he became a well-known philosopher and theologian at Oxford. But it was his theological and biblical studies that drew his greatest attention. He wrote extensively on what he considered the corruption of the Church and contributed significant support for an English translation of the Bible, making his teachings highly controversial. Wycliffe constantly lived under the threat of death. After he died of a stroke, a Bible translation was completed by his followers. His work left such an impression that, 44 years after his death, church officials dug up his body and burned his remains. His followers’ translation work is honored among others at Museum of the Bible in an entire floor dedicated to the history of the Bible.
