Episode 091 Wycliffe Hall Oxford University with Michael Lloyd

Michael Lloyd is prinicipal of Wycliffe Hall, part of the Oxford University system.  He joins David Capes on the Stone Chapel to talk about the history and mission of Wycliffe Hall.  The Wycliffe name is associated with the early protest movements against the established church in the late Middle Ages.  In particular, John Wycliffe had been a professor and theologian at Oxford University in the 14th century. He is probably best known for his insistence that people be able to read the Bible in their own language.

Today, Wycliffe Hall stands in that same tradition.  It trains women and men for various roles in the Anglican Church.  Wycliffe Hall and the Lanier Foundation in the UK will establish a partnership as Yarnton Manor provides residences and class space for Wycliffe students, faculty, and staff.
