John of Gaunt and the Lollards

Posted April 30th, 2011 at 09:51 AM by Comet

Many historians have agreed that the relationship between John of Gaunt and John Wyclif was merely political and that Gaunt did not have the ability to understand Wyclif's difficult doctrines. However, a new reinterpretation of the historical record may show that this relationship may not have been solely political as historians have made it out to be.

Norman Cantor, author of The Last Knight, hints at the possibility that Gaunt may have gotten caught up in Wyclif's religious ideology....
