Read e-book online Wyclif PDF

By John Wyclif,Stephen E. Lahey

John Wyclif is understood for translating the Vulgate Bible into English, and for disagreeing for the royal divestment of the church, the relief of papal strength and the removing of the friars and opposed to the doctrine of transubstantiation. His concept catalyzed the Lollard move in England and supplied an ideology for the Hussite revolution in Bohemia. Wyclif's Trialogus discusses divine strength and data, production, virtues and vices, the Incarnation, redemption and the sacraments. It involves a three-way dialog, which Wyclif wrote to familiarize clergymen and layfolk with the advanced matters underlying Christian doctrine, and starts with formal philosophical theology, which strikes into ethical theology, concluding with a searing critique of the fourteenth-century ecclesiastical established order. Stephen Lahey offers a whole English translation of all 4 books, and the 'Supplement to the Trialogue', with a view to be a precious source for students and scholars at the moment counting on selective translated extracts.
