Abstract

Chaucer's attitudes toward religious reform were undoubtedly affected by his association with the brilliant Wyclif, an outspoken advocate of conservative orthodoxy. The deplorable moral state of the 14th century church, attested to by the church's fruitless attempts to correct existing abuses, demanded an interest in reform.
