Chapter Summary

Wyclif 's reputation as a philosopher was restored by J.A Robson, who engaged with the study of Summa de Ente in the context of the intellectual environment of the Oxford schools. It seems that Oxford, "he house of God and the gate of heaven," was, indeed, Wyclif 's natural nest. Though his first known opponent, Johannis Kenygham, Provincial of the Carmelite Order in England, made a sarcastic remark about his nesting in Herod's court; yet, Oxford was obviously his home and place of predilection. It was his nest of logic, nature, and metaphysics, where he was nurtured by the understanding of the scripture on the food of its truth. Wyclif 's heresies taught in Oxford before he engaged himself with the work on dominion had prepared the ground for the more momentous debate concerning his mature system of divine and human dominion based on the integrity of "man and nature".
