Reformed Churchmen

We are Confessional Calvinists and a Prayer Book Church-people. In 2012, we remembered the 350th anniversary of the 1662 Book of Common Prayer; also, we remembered the 450th anniversary of John Jewel's sober, scholarly, and Reformed "An Apology of the Church of England." In 2013, we remembered the publication of the "Heidelberg Catechism" and the influence of Reformed theologians in England, including Heinrich Bullinger's Decades. For 2014: Tyndale's NT translation. For 2015, John Roger, Rowland Taylor and Bishop John Hooper's martyrdom, burned at the stakes. Books of the month. December 2014: Alan Jacob's "Book of Common Prayer" at: January 2015: A.F. Pollard's "Thomas Cranmer and the English Reformation: 1489-1556" at: February 2015: Jaspar Ridley's "Thomas Cranmer" at:

Dyson Hague: "Wycliffe: An Historical Study"

Hague, Dyson. Wycliffe: An Historical Study. Toronto: Church Record S.S. Publications, 1924.

It can be accessed and saved as a pdf.file.

Dyson Hague, MA, was the Rector of Memorial Church, London, ONT and Canon of St. Paul’s Cathedral Church, London, ONT.

Here is St. Paul's Cathedral, London, ONT, about 60 miles from the Veitch farm (Great Grandparents, Aliston, ONT...Canadian Anglicans also).  About 120 miles from where your's truly was born.

This little handbook by Dyson Hague is a wonderful little work on Wycliffe.  Clear, succinct, well-researched. 

Wycliffe was and is a man whose thought blows with new freshness on the themes of our time, e.g. the book of Romans for starters...a magisterial Epistle for those for whom, among whom and to whom St. Paul's theology still matters. A necessary epistle for mastery for the young (and the older by way of reminder since they should have already mastered it) Churchmen.
