John Wycliffe's New Testament

copy of John Wycliffe's New Testament

One of our newest acquisitions: a copy of John Wycliffe's New Testament. Wycliffe, an English philosoher and theologian and an advocate for a translation of the Bible into English, completed an English translation of the New Testament in 1382. While many manuscript copies of Wycliffe's translation circulated, this edition (published by John Lewis in 1731) was the earliest printed edition of the text to exist.
