John Wycliffe Quote

John Gaunt,the Duke of Lancaster: You have gone too far this time.I have seen what you have written on the Holy Eucharist.

John Wycliffe:Transubstantiation is a modern doctrine.The Pope in the fourth lateran counsel proclaimed it less than two hundred years ago.

John Gaunt: I care not when it was proclaimed,it is believed throughout the whole of Christendom.

John Wycliffe: My noble Duke,the fact that something is believed by the mulitudes does not necessary make it true.
