Lollards, evangelicals, and historians
Abstract only
Log-in for full text

This chapter details who the lollards were and, more importantly for this study, who they were according to early evangelicals and later Protestants. It looks at the figure of John Foxe himself, introducing his most acclaimed work, Acts and Monuments. It then untangles the winding and often problematic study of the relationship between lollards and evangelicals in modern times, and the second part goes on to elucidate how medieval dissenters were understood by sixteenth-century evangelical historians. These two parts are separate but intimately related: the modern study of the relationship between lollards and later evangelicals has been highly influenced by the words of those evangelicals who saw a relationship with the lollards.
