An Aatunt of the Lift of John Wicliff, me if the first Rejormtrn fromaWark lately fmbltJheJ, Milled, •' The Lives of John Wuliff, and the molt eminent of his Disciples, Lord Col-ham, John Huft, Jeiomrof Prague, and Ztfca."

Worn about the year 1314, in the reign of Ed/ward the Second. He was intended for B the church, and lent to Queen's College, Oxford, which had been just then founded hy Robert Eagleifuld, Confessor to Qneen Phtlijipa .- He did not, however, find the advantages for study that he expected, and therefore removed to Mertm College, which was then esteem- C ed one of the most learned societies in Europe.

Here he applied with such diligence, that he is said to have gotten the molt abstruse parts of the works of Aristotle 'hy heart; he was in particular so conversant in his logic, that he became D the most sub:le disputant of his time.

He then proceeded to study the divinity of the times, which has since obtained the name of School Divinity; and he became a complete master of all the niceties of that strange jargon.

But being rather milled than bewildered in this unprofitable study, he £ soon found out a better way; he took the naked text of scripture, and became his own commentator , in consequence of this determination, he neceslarity conceived opinions that wire then singular; yet, among his contemporaries, he obtained the name of the Evangel'u Dollar. f

To the study of divinity, he added that of the civil and Canon law ; and with the municipal law he is also said to have been well acquainted.

Hit reputation increased vtitU his

knowledge, and he was respected »o| only as a scholar, but as a man eminent for virtue and piety. But the firft thing that drew the eye of the public upon him, was his Defence of the Uniyerfity against the Begging Fryars.

The Begging Fryars, a lelipious order, were first fettled ut Oxford about the year 1130, and had always been veiy troublesome inmates of the Uni-' vrrfity, letting up a different interest, aiming at a distinct juiisdiction, and fomenting feuds between the scholar! and their superiors; many very severe statutes had therefore been made by the university to curb them, aud mutual opposition continually rendered mutual ill-will more bitter and im-, pJacable. The Friars fiequently ap, pealed to the Pope, and the scholar* to the civil power; and iomttimes one party prevailed, and sometimes tlw other.

While things were in this situation, the Fryars took it into their heads, that Christ was a common Beggar, that his disciple* were Beggars also, and that Begging was therefore of Gospel institution. This notion they propagated with great zeal, from all the pulpits both in Oxford and the neighbourhood to which tney had acceft,

rViclrff, who had long held these Beggars in great contempt, took this opportunity to write and publish a treatise against AU Beggary, in which he 'shewed the obligation that all Christi. ans lay under, to labour in some way for the good of the community; and proved the Fryars to be an useless and infamous sett of mcD, wallowing in luxury, and at once a reproach to religion and mankind.

This piece procured him great reputation; and the University, who sow regarded him as hei champion, soon atter promoted him to ►*• terlhip of Haiti CiMtye in a short time, chcffrugf-Wotf, lately
