A docu-drama biography of the life of the 14th century scholar and cleric who translated the Bible into English for the first time. John Wycliffe found himself in the middle of religious, political and social conflicts. An Oxford scholar, one of Europe's most renowned philosophers, John Wycliffe was a defender of English nationalism against the power of the pope and a champion of the poor against the injustices of the rich.
In a world emerging from the Black Death, he faced the fury of a corrupt church as he struggles to maintain his integrity. Living 150 years before Martin Luther, John Wycliffe has been called the 'Morning Star of the Reformation'. As the planet Venus appears on the horizon just before dawn, so John Wycliffe appeared in Europe just before the reawakening of Christianity in the 16th century. Follow in his footsteps as Wycliffe takes on the mammoth medieval powers of church and state.
