Welcome to the Wycliffite Repository

This newly founded repository makes a selective concordance of 395 headwords available for scholarly consultation and research. The concordance was generated from an assemblage of 432 Middle English texts associated with the Wycliffite/Lollard heresy. Access is via PDF and web concordance

The headword list is comprised both of vocabulary commonly associated with Lollardy and terms not so commonly noticed. Whereas many of the 432 texts are not overtly heretical, they are very often evocatively aligned with heterodox vernacular and Latin texts on anticlericalism, poverty, law, and piety.

Later phases of development may include access to the XML-tagged Middle English and Latin texts and other vernacular/Latin web concordances on texts associated with Wycliffism/Lollardy, subject to copyright restrictions and to ongoing repository vision.
