- In 14th C England a host of popular preachers appeared. Of importance are John Bromyard's Opius trivium + the Summa praedicantium, an enormous compilation that constituted a real mine for preachers in quest of subjects both dogmatic + moral. It enjoyed an extraordinary popullarity towards the end of the Middle Ages. - The English Dominicans, from the end of the 14th through the beginning of the 15th C were most zealous in refuting the errors of Wycliff, so that their works had theological controversy as their special subject. -Before Chaucer, J. Bromyard is the moral satirist of clerical life and , broader in range than Chaucer, he subjects lay as well as classical institiutions to his sharp sting. One must be struck by the modernity of his 14th C complaint that schools of divinity are deserted because everyone wants to make money + so everyone is going to law school. Claudin IV N.
