Description

Sixteenth Century Essays & Studies, Vol. 6

Smeeton, one of the top scholars on Tyndale, has meticulously researched the relationships between the medieval Lollards and Tyndale, one of the early translators of the Bible into English, and he finds a close relationship between the two. To accomplish this conclusion, Smeeton has had to wade through the extensive and often contradictory morass of Tyndale studies. Smeeton does so, skillfully showing parallels between Wycliffe, the Lollards, and Tyndale on subjects such as God’s law, the doctrine of salvation, the role of scripture, and the nature of the church.
