The Life of the Reformers

John Wycliffe

1320

He was a teacher at Oxford University until he was dismissed under pressure from those in the Catholic Church who were opposed to his ideas. He devoted the rest of his life to translating the Bible into English. He was the forerunner of the Reformation that would start approximately 200 years later.
