“GAIRDNER in particular has recently published a work entitled Lollardy and the Reformation (2 vols., 1908), which does fullest justice to the Catholic position.”
“A theological separation had been foreshadowed by various movements within the English church such as Lollardy, but the English Reformation gained political support when Henry VIII wanted an annulment of his marriage to Catherine of Aragon so he could marry Anne Boleyn.”
“It is to the credit of modern students of medieval history that the grave misrepresentations involved in this traditional Protestant view are now generally abandoned (see e.g. Gairdner, "Lollardy", I, 100-17; "Cambridge Hist. of Eng. Literature", II, 56-62).”
“Lollardy," as the profession of the new doctrines was called, became known to the ecclesiastical rulers long before the statute for burning heretics was passed in England; and his religious opinions exposed him to great troubles and hardships, even in the reign of Richard II.”
“What they did was on an unprecedented scale in England because heresy existed on an unprecedented scale "(Innes," England under the Tudors ", 232; and cf. Gairdner," Lollardy ", I,327).”
“Forty-four years after his death, his beliefs were at the center of England's home-grown heresy, Lollardy, and the folks in power responded by disinterring Wycliff and burning his body.”

“Archbishop Courtenay purged Oxford of Lollardy, thus separating the movement from the cultured classes.”
“Bent on the revival of the Church, he led a strong attack on Lollardy: Sir John Oldcastle (Lord Cobham), the leading Lollard, was excommunicated by Archbishop Arundel but escaped; a Lollard plot against the king's life was discovered; Henry attacked (1414) and captured a Lollard group, most of whom were hanged; anti-Lollard legislation allowed seizure of their books; Oldcastle, the last influential Lollard, executed (1417).”
“Wiclif, who had alienated his upper-class supporters by a denial of transubstantiation, was discredited by the Peasants 'Revolt and condemned by the Church; he withdrew to Lutterworth (138284), where he continued to foster Lollardy until he died (1384).”
