As a Catholic I had never heard or read much about John Wyclif until I began re-enacting. A lot of what I was told then came from more experienced re-enactors and reading this makes it clear that they were generally repeating the propaganda of Foxe's Book of Martyrs and had done little if any research into the person. Now, this book is very heavy going and I didn't enjoy the author's continual use of quotes from much later students and masters of Oxford University (because I suspect she found it impossible to find suitable 14th century comments) but it cleared up an awful lot for me. I can't see myself reading it again though.
Anything with a vague historical bent
