The Protestant Revolution was the result of a volatile mixture of theology and nationalism. Radical priests who were at odds with the Church were also nationalist heroes. The radical theology of the rebel priests was quite similar, but the nationalist issues are unique to each of them. England 1. Who was John Wyclif and how did he come into conflict with the Church? -Oxford theologian (1328-1384) -disgust with church corruption led him to make a far-ranging attack on papal authority and medieval Christian beliefs and practices -Wyclif alleged that there was no basis in Scripture for papal claims of temporal authority and advocated that the popes be strippedof their authority and their property. Believing that the Bible should be a Christian’s sole authority, Wyclif urged that it be made available in the vernacular languages so that every Christian could read it. Rejecting all practices not mentioned in Scripture, Wyclif condemned pilgrimages, the veneration of saints, and a whole series of rituals and rites that had developed in the medieval church. Wyclif attracted a number of followers who came to be known as Lollards. What was England's Anticlerical Party? - What was the significance of the Hundred Years War in the conflict concerning John Wyclif? - That 10% of the money from France was supposed to go to the Church. France begins to question where it should be going. This goes along with what Wyclif says about the Church and money. What is a Wyclif Bible? -A bible where the New Testament was translated into English so that everyone was able to read it. And he believes his interpretation is the true interpretation. Why was this Bible forbidden by the Church? - Because the Bible is suppose to be kept in its true form and that any translation would not be the truth. And only the clergy was suppose to read and own the Bible.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
