Bibliography of Primary Sources
This bibliography includes primary source texts relevant to the literary, historical, cultural, and religious milieu of Lollardy as well as those specifically by and about Lollard writers–and so, it is also a good place to start for work on later medieval religious culture in England at large. Inclusion on this list, therefore, does not necessarily mean that a text is Lollard.
This list is lightly annotated. For more help, Pitard, “A Selected Bibliography for Lollard Studies” (listed below under “Bibliographies and Indices”) gives brief summaries of areas of relevant scholarship.
Users should note that despite many of the titles, few scholars today believe that any extant English text can be ascribed to Wyclif’s hand, including the Bible translation. There are Middle English translations of some of his Latin works, but no-one knows for sure who did these. Virtually all Middle English Wycliffite texts remain anonymous.
The Bibliography of Primary Sources contains five sections:
Dissertations and theses are included under whatever category their content might belong. Manuscripts are not included; for these, see Severs and Hartung (below, under Bibliographies and Indices), with the necessary addendum to this list provided by Hudson, “Additions and Modifications” (also listed under Bibliographies).
Full copies of some out-of-copyright texts can now be downloaded directly from this list. Look for the (.pdf) icon. Sizes of downloads are given in megabytes (mb) at the end of the entry. These have been bookmarked and reviewed for completeness.
Also see the list of Article Collections (to which essays on this list are now linked) and the Bibliography of Secondary Sources. Since these bibliographies are meant to be complete listings of texts and studies relevant to Wycliffism, please let us know of any new references which should be included.

McSheffrey, Shannon and Norman Tanner, eds. Lollards of Coventry 1486-1522. Royal Historical Society, Camden Society, fifth series, vol. 23. Cambridge: Cambridge UP, December 2003. [“In the late fifteenth and early sixteenth centuries, Coventry harboured a community of Lollards, adherents of medieval England’s only popular heresy. Allowed to flourish relatively unmolested for decades, the Coventry Lollards came under close episcopal scrutiny in 1511 and 1512 when Geoffrey Blyth, bishop of Coventry and Lichfield, began a concerted effort to uncover and eradicate their community. This volume presents a remarkable record of the testimony compiled during Blyth’s crackdown, along with all other surviving evidence for heretical activities in Coventry. The documents, offered here both in their original languages of Latin and Middle English and in modern English translation, give new insights into the nature of religious dissent in the years just prior to the first stirrings of the English Reformation.”]

[Following his 8-volume edition of the EV, these are the first four volumes of Lindberg’s edition of the LV, based on Bodley 277 and collated with Forshall and Madden’s 1850 edition. Lindberg picks Bodley 277 as his base text because, as he argues, the unique mix of largely LV text with some relict EV forms “unites features of all the previous stages into an authoritative whole worthy of the originator.”]

My discussion falls into three parts: an introduction to Lollard regard for the Psalms as a preeminent biblical book, a description of the catena as an underappreciated literary form, and . . . an analysis of the Huntington psalms catena. I then offer a critical edition of the Huntington catena” (96).]

THE WORKS OF JOHN WYCLIF
While various chroniclers record that Wyclif preached in English, and various works of his are translated during the period, this bibliography assumes that there are no surviving Middle English texts which we can confidently ascribe to his hand. This is not a listing of all his works, but of later printed editions. For other indices see Severs 2.519-521, and Thomson, Latin Writings (listed above in “Bibliographies and Indices“). The texts published by the Wyclif Society between 1883 and 1922 were republished by Johnson Reprints Corp., New York, in 1966. I list modern translations after the editions of the Latin works. Note that a web edition of The Latin Works of John Wyclif is being published.

HUSSITE TEXTS, INCLUDING THE WORKS OF JAN HUS
Only works edited in Latin or English are included here. Hus’s works seem to have been edited between about 1899-1908 in Latin by Václav Flajšhans and others, and then reprinted in 1966 by Academia. Brepols seems to be reprinting these editions now. His “Sebrané spisy Ceske,” “Collected Works” translated into Czech, were published at about the same time; these Czech volumes are not included below, but they are available for download on Google Books. A number of other important texts are edited in the appendix to Loserth, Wiclif and Hus.
