Hence arose popular outcries against the wealth of the Church at large, such as that of which Wickliffe was the head in the fourteenth century, and which his followers, the Lollards, kept up long afterwards. Hence also arose fierce attempts on the part of the House of Commons to confiscate the whole of the possessions of the Church, a well authenticated instance of which is recorded as occurring in 1410.

But a more full account of the transac-tion--a very wild and absurd one by the bye--is given in one of the Lansdowne MSS. as follows:--Billa porrecta parliamento pro tem-poralibus extra nianus rcligioso-nun capiendis xj. anno Regni Regis Henrici Quarti.
