Sample text

Johann Loserth, (London, 1913), pp. 405–30. 56 Wyclif, Determinacio, in Opera Minora, p. 417, 425. john wyclif, c. 1331‒1384 17 cannot know for certain that he was there, he refers to himself in the Determinatio as a “pecularis regis clericus,” which seems to indicate special service to the Crown. It would also help explain his choice to be part of a second delegation to respond to Gregory’s demands. However, as we shall see, the dating of the Determinatio is a complicated matter, and it is unwise to make an argument about Wyclif ’s service to the Crown based on this text.

Catto, “Wyclif,” p. 200, n. 83, rejects the notion that Wyclif was present at the Parliament of 1371, but Workman, 1:210, Gwynn, Austin Friars, p. 213, and Holmes, Good Parliament, p. 168, all feel that he was present. If he was not present on Edward’s business, we are left with the small question of why the Crown granted him the tithes of Ludgershall just a few months later. 16 andrew e. larsen Wyclif ’s presence at this Parliament is most easily explained by the idea that he was serving the Crown or perhaps Lord Scrope in some capacity at the meeting, although his presence at this Parliament is not provable.
