Below is a clip from a movie, entitled Wycliffe, about one of the more extraordinary, and yet little-known, Christians. Simply put, he believed what the Bible said, and lived his life according to the gospel. John Wycliffe, a 14th century reformer whose life was devoted to living the word of God, and spreading the good news about Christ throughout England. He was a professor at Oxford, but ran into trouble with the Catholic church when he wrote and preached against the enormous wealth the church held throughout the world. Wycliffe (also spelled Wyclif) proposed selling most of the lands and giving the proceeds to the poor.
An excellent resource, and also an interesting perspective on Wycliffe, is none other than the online Catholic Encyclopedia.
