Today Wycliffe has nearly 6,500 workers in over 50 countries. Their efforts have produced Scripture portions in hundreds of languages.
Wycliffe’s Bible must be counted among the many causes behind the Reformation in England.
John Wycliffe (c. 1329-1384) was known as the first among the great Reformation figures. He was born in Yorkshire, England and studied at Oxford, an institution he remained connected to throughout his life as a teacher and writer.
John Hus (c. 1373-1415) was born in Bohemia, or what is today the Czech Republic. Hus was of peasant stock but distinguished himself academically and was accepted into the University of Prague.
