Review of the hardback: 'This beautifully-written, useful and learned book by Mary Dove takes stock of the scholarship to date and looks at all the textual, linguistic and interpretative questions afresh in the light of the considerable manuscript evidence.' Journal of Ecclesiastical History
Review of the hardback: 'Considerably more manuscripts survive of [the Wycliffite Bible] in whole or in part (c.250) ... than of any other Middle English text. This already gives good reason to welcome this new study, the first book-length treatment for nearly 90 years. But more than that, Dove's approach, detail and scholarship make this an authoritative volume.' Journal for the Study of the Old Testament
In the first study of the Wycliffite Bible for nearly a century, Mary Dove takes the reader through every step of the conception, design and execution of the first English Bible. Wyclif's work initiated a tradition of scholarly, stylish and thoughtful biblical translation, and remains a major cultural landmark.
