Potter's Wax Museum- John Wycliffe


This vintage wax figure from the Potter's Wax Museum in Florida shows English theologian John Wycliffe. He was critical of the Roman Catholic church and papal authority. He also believed in having the Bible available to the common man, a major issue of the upcoming reformation. Because he was the earliest reformers he is known as "The Morning Star of the Reformation". His English translation of the Bible is one of his biggest and most historical achievements.
