About "John Wycliffe: The Morningstar"
:14th Century scholar John Wycliffe's greatest achievement was the translation of the Bible into English. One of Europe's most renowned philosophers, Wycliffe chose to serve the common people. He exposed the superstitions that had displaced Biblical doctrine in the medieval church. Wycliffe took enormous risks to provide the Scriptures for the people. The film provides valuable insight into conditions in the pre-Reformation church and shows why Wycliffe is hailed as the "Morningstar of the Reformation." He set the stage for later reformers including Hus, Luther, and Tyndale. This dramatic film develops appreciation for the development of the English Bible.
