"Truly a 'companion" - an introduction to the life and work of the Oxford reformer, adding however to older research and introducing many new points of view ... not only does the volume as a collection deserve a welcome. so too do the included list of Wyclif's Latin works, the select bilbiography, and last but not least the detailed index". Frantisek Smahel in Cesky casopis historicky Vol. 205, 2007/4.

"certainly a book which will make its mark... Individually and collectively this is an extremely important and valuable set of essays, which no-one working on Wyclif, on the origins of the `Lollard' movement, or on English intellectual activity in the fourteenth century, can afford to ignore." R.N. Swanson in Heythrop Journal, Nov2008, Vol. 49 Issue 6, p1071-1072.
