It was also reviewed by Dr. Robert Vaughan in Brit Quar. Rev., Oct. 1858, and this article—Wycliffe, his Biographers and Critics—was also published in pamphlet form.

"Let these two productions be carefully compared, and I am quite content to abide the result, as regards any difference between Mr. 8hirley and myself."—Robert Vaughin: Lon. Athen., 1861, i. 529.

"The Rev. W. W. Shirley's account of Wyclif recently published (Fasciculus Zizaniorum) is full of errors."—Kobeet Vacohan: Revolutions in Eng. History, vol. i., 1850.

"Though comparatively few names or dates occur in Dr. Vaughan's volume, we remark enough errors among them to lay him open, in a measure, to his own censure on Mr. Shirley." —Lon. Gent. Mag., 1869, f. 135: Revolution! in English History, vol. i.

Mr. Shirley has since favoured us with a Catalogue of the Original Works of John Wiclif, Oxford, Clarendon Press, 1865, 8vo. He projects a complete edition of Wycliffe's English works, with n selection from his Latin works. The Early English Text Society had intended to issue Wycliffe's Sharp Treatises against the Friars in the library of Corpus Christi College, but it has yielded the whole field to Mr. Shirley, who, wo presume, will avail himself of the vellum MS. discovered at Vienna in 1863, containing fifty treatises in Latin by Wycliffe, one of which, De Officio Pastorale, was published by Professor Lechner in 1863. See, also, Wiclif, Trialogus cum Supp. Trialogi, by G. Lechler, 1869, 8vo.

We had almost forgotten to state that some of Wycliffe's English treatises were disposed of at the sale of Archbishop Tcnison's MSS., July 1, 1861, for £37 10».

Some years ago, one of his warmest admirers complained:

"To the memory of Wyclif—one of the greatest of Englishmen—his country has been singularly and painfully ungrateful. Of his works, tho greatest—the Trialogus, one "of the most thoughtful of the middle ages—has twice been printed abroad, in England never. Of his original English works nothing bevond one or two tracts (the 'General Prologue to the llihlc'aud 'Wycliffe's Wychet') have seen the light. If considered only as the father of English prose, the great reformer might claim more reverential treatment at our hands. As it is in the light of subsequent events that we see the greatness of Wyclif a* a reformer, so it is from the later growth of tho language that we best learn to appreciate the beauty of his writings. But it val less the reformer, or the master of English proso, than the great schoolman, that Inspired the respect of his contemporaries; and next to the deep influence of his personal holiness, and tho attractive greatness of his moral character, it was to his supreme command of the weapons of scholastic discussion that he owed his astonishing influence."—Rev. W. W. Shirley.

"Wykeham, the splendid, munificent, in character blameless Prelate, Was wise enotigh to devote his vast riches to the promotion of learning, and by the foundation of noble colleges was striving to continue the spell of the hierarchical |H)wer over the human mind. WycIifTe, seeing the more common abuse of that power by Prelates of baser anil more sordid worldliness, sought tho interests of Christ's religion in the depression, in the abrogation, of the mediaeval hierarchy. The religious annals of Kngland may well be proud of both."—II. H. Milman: Hist, of Lat. Chris., vol. vii., book xiii. eh. vi.
