Abstract

This session will bring together recent and ongoing research on Wycliffite texts in order to refine our understanding of the processes and intentions behind the Wycliffite translation project. The papers will revisit Wycliffite texts which have been the focus of much scholarly inquiry as well as presenting insights into under-explored areas of Wycliffite studies, revealing insights into the Wycliffite 'entanglements' which interconnect individual texts and translation projects in view of their overarching objectives.
