Sometime in the mid-1320's in Yorkshire, village of Wycliffe
possibly began shortly before 1350
based on a 1369 description of Wyclif as "in sacra theologia bacallarius"
College newly founded by Archbishop Simon Islip (died in 1366). Wyclif was one of the fellows intended to help ensure a secular presence at the college. He, along with all other secular fellows, were removed from their positions in the spring of 1367, which he strongly resisted. He appealed to Rome, and in 1370 the college was officially declared a solely monk-organized institution.
Might possibly refer to a contemporary with the same name (?)
in Buckinghamshire; saw himself as being wrongfully displaced by papal provisor Philip Thornbury
in Leicestershire. Held this position until his death.
Summoned to St. Paul's by Archbishop Sudbury to account for heretical arguments
as well as one against the king and one against the chancellor of the University of Oxford.
Bulls based on claims made in Wycliff's De civili dominio.
William Barton, Oxford chancellor, organizes committee to expel heretics from university. Wyclif is read announcement while lecturing.
Buried in the churchyard at Lutterworth
In spring, his body is exhumed, bones burned, and ash scattered on the River Swift, by order of Pope Martin V.
