Sample text

66 In De potestate papae, he condemns prebends who fail to fulfill their 63 Workman, 1:153, 156–71, Robson, Wyclif, p. 14. H. Lloyd, “John Wyclif and the Prebend of Lincoln,” English Historical Review, 61 (1946), 388–94. 65 For defenses of Wyclif ’s pluralism and non-residency, see Workman, 1:161–9; MacFarlane, John Wyclif, pp. 23–27. Workman argues that Wyclif ’s failure to provide a vicar was not due to a lack of concern but rather to an inability to find a suitable vicar owing to the problems created by the Black Death, a reasonable but entirely speculative argument.

77 John Gilbert had been translated from Bangor to Hereford, and Ralph Erghum had been appointed to Salisbury, both by way of the papal provisions that they had opposed at Bruges but that the final concordat ultimately permitted, while Wyclif, whose presumed opposition to provisions may have cost him his place on the third delegation, received nothing. On the surface Hallum’s statement reflects a disparity in the way the delegates were rewarded for their efforts. But on deeper examination, Hallum’s charges ring false.

However, by rejecting the political motive for the summons, Dahmus has thrown out the sufficient cause for the argument. If political motives played no part in the summons, why did the summons happen the way it did? Why were they brought early in 1377, at a time when the bishops must certainly have known about Gaunt’s support for Wyclif ? At a time when the episcopate was embroiled in a conflict with Gaunt, why did they allow themselves to be diverted into examining heresy charges? If this was just a heresy trial, why was Sudbury reluctant to commit to it, and why were the proceedings atypically presided over by the archbishop and not the bishop of Lincoln?
