The Lollards offers a brief, insightful guide to the entire history of England's only native medieval heretical movement. Beginning with its fourteenth century origins in the theology of an Oxford professor, John Wyclif, Richard Rex examines the spread of Lollardy across much of England until its eventual dissolution amidst the ecclesiastical and doctrinal upheavals of the sixteenth century. Taking account of recent scholarship, The Lollards examines the movement's relationship to Wyclif's teachings, its social and geographical distribution, its political significance and its relationship to the English Reformation.
Richard Rex lectures in Church History at the Cambridge University Faculty of Divinity, and is Director of Studies in History at Queens' College, Cambridge.
