H. Galbraith, (Manchester, 1927), pp. 103–4; see also Workman, 1:284–88; Dahmus, pp. 28–29. Finally, there is a confused account by Walsingham, which conflates the St Paul’s trial and the Lambeth trial, contained in the Short Chronicle version of his Chronica Majora, in St Albans, p. 985, 105 Dahmus, pp. 35–6; Henry Ansgar Kelly, “Trial Procedures against Wyclif and john wyclif, c. 1331‒1384 29 Walsingham reports that Archbishop Sudbury had to be pushed into the affair by the other bishops, and the archbishop’s reluctance perhaps accounts for his virtual invisibility in the records of the trial.

De mandatis divinis and De statu innocencie also date to 1376. 100 From all of this, it is clear that by 1377, Wyclif was a well-known figure, at least among intellectuals, political figures, and the London crowd and the suggestion that he was an obscure academic prior to 1377 is hard to support.
