A group of Bible translations into Middle English that were made under the direction of John Wycliffe, over a period from approximately 1382 to 1395. These Bible translations were the chief inspiration and chief cause of the Lollard movement. Long thought to be the work of Wycliffe himself, the Wycliffe translations are now generally believed to be the work of several hands. Nicholas of Hereford is known to have translated a part of the text; John Purvey and perhaps John Trevisa are names that have been mentioned as possible authors.
