Chapter Summary

In Wyclif 's theory, the spiritual reality of the integrity of created and uncreated being was not understood as a reality separated and distanced from actual natural being in time and space: to the innocent state of man before the fall, to justification after the last judgement in time, or to a metaphysical presence beyond the crystal heavens in space. The reconstruction of Wyclif 's discourse on divine and human dominion, lordship and ownership in community, may help us to understand his influence, creating a community thereby ready to use and enjoy their natural dominion as a gift from divinity present in the individual soul, in the soul of the republic and in the soul of nature at the same time, and preserving the sanctity of life against man-made orders and the service of their forms of representation.

Keywords:crystal heavens; divinity; lordship; natural dominion; ownership; soul of nature; Wyclif 's discourse; Wyclif 's theory
