(p.134) 4 Preaching the Gospel
English Preaching in the Late Middle Ages

H. Leith Spencer

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses preaching of the gospel and the conflict between lay education and censorship. It describes the heretical preaching which the Church associates with John Wyclif. The Lollards or followers of Wyclif began circulating vernacular translations of the Bible which enabled those who are literate in English to read the Bible. Thomas Arundel, Archbishop of Canterbury, by means of his Provincial Constitutions, imposed restrictions on unlicensed preaching and circulation of vernacular scriptures.

Keywords:   preaching, gospel, heretical preaching, John Wyclif, Lollards, Bible, Thomas Arundel, Provincial Constitutions, vernacular scripture
