Chapter Summary

Joye's falling-out with Tyndale has certainly had its consequences on his reputation, and as a result not only their debate but also George Joye's person in general have been for the most part ignored by the scholarly world. This chapter is divided into three sections: the first biographical references by Joye's contemporaries; the conservative consensus and some exceptions to it, and a shift in the study of Joye. The new assessment of Joye proposed by Butterworth, Chester, and, most importantly, Clebsch has apparently induced other writers to produce a series of other studies dedicated to Joye. The relevant theological issues and the general historical and theological context of the controversy, especially the quest of Christians to grasp the issues of an existence after this earthly life, will form the background of the Joye-Tyndale debate.

Keywords: Allan Chester; Charles C. Butterworth; George Joye; historical context; Joye-Tyndale debate; theological context; William Clebsch; William Tyndale
