It denied transubstantiation; it condemned the use of sacramentals, images, prayers for the dead, and auricular confession; it spoke out against all war; and it attacked clerical celibacy and the chastity vows of nuns as unnatural.
At its peak just before the turn of the century, Lollardry appealed to members of the middle and upper classes as well as to those of the lower; Oxford became an intellectual center of Lollardry.
Finally, although Lollardry knew nothing of Martin Luther's doctrine of justification by faith, it did in effect proclaim the direct responsibility of the individual soul to God—the essential idea of the Reformation.

Contemporary with this was the rise of Lollardry, the prototype of English Protestantism promoted by John Wycliffe, the Oxford scholastic.
Lollardry as a social phenomenon had a specific Venetian pedigree, best seen through the prevalence among the Lollard rank and file of the belief that the soul is not immortal and dies with the body.

 Jerome of Prague - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
He was born in Prague to a wealthy family; after taking his bachelor's degree at the University of Prague in 1398, he secured in 1399 permission to travel.
In 1401 he returned to Prague, but in 1402 visited England, and in Oxford copied out the Dialogus and Trialogus of John Wyclif, and thus evinced his interest in Lollardry.
He also became an ardent and outspoken advocate of realism (as opposed to nominalism) and from then on Wyclifism and realism were charges which were constantly getting him into trouble.

 John Fastolf - Encyclopedia, History, Geography and Biography
Besides his share in his wife's property he had large estates in Norfolk and Suffolk, and a house at Southwark, where he also owned the Boar's Head Inn.
There is some reason to suppose that Fastolf favoured Lollardry, and this circumstance with the tradition of his braggart cowardice may have suggested the use of his name for the boon companion of Prince Hal, when Shakespeare found it expedient to drop that of Oldcastle.
In the first two folios the name of the historical character in the first part of Henry VI is given as Falstaffe not Fastolf.

The tendency of Lollardry and its children was to constantly tear away at authoritarian structures, to undermine hierarchy, and to decentralize.
When Henry IV came to the throne in 1399, he began a systematic campaign to suppress Lollardry.

 Communalism (2) (Rexroth)
Lollardry went on all through the Wars of the Roses, always providing the throne with a ready-made justification for economic attacks upon the Church.
The archbishop immediately moved to the attack and secured the condemnation of Lollardry and all of Wycliffe’s books by Pope Alexander V and another papal bull prohibiting preaching in all independent chapels.
Hus continued to preach and was excommunicated by the archbishop, whereupon he appealed to the new pope, John XXIII, who was soon to prove himself one of the most corrupt and depraved in the history of the papacy.

Revised by his disciple, Purvey, in 1388, it was circulated in fragmentary manuscripts and became the fountainhead of Lollardry.
It was passed from hand to hand, read by the “vulgar and by women,” until it was complained that they knew more of the Bible than did the priests themselves.
As with a magic wand, it called Lollardry into being, and though the new faith was stamped out in fire and blood, and though the desolating Wars of the Roses turned men’s thoughts in other.

 Draf out of my Fest: Chaucer and the Lollards
Because Wyclif was not altogether an original thinker2 beliefs identified as Lollardry might be derived from a number of different sources.
Nevertheless, the progress of Lollardry in the late fourteenth century represents a cultural movement which influenced the creation and reception of The Canterbury Tales.
As to the question of Chaucer's Lollardry, it would probably be difficult to find an Englishman of any social class in the late fourteenth century who did not share some Lollard sympathies, whether rationalist theology or nationalist politics.

Lollardy contained a strong dose of primitive socialism; Lollard leaders like John Ball and "Jack Straw" preached social revolution with slogans like "When Adam delved and Eve span, Who was then the gentleman?" This is the ultimate source of that communism which David Urquhardt taught Karl Marx five centuries later.
Finally, Lollardry spread into central Europe through the medium of the Husites of Bohemia and caused a series of wars of religion there.
In seventeenth-century England there was a slogan to the effect that Wycliffe begat Hus, Hus begat Luther, and Luther begat truth.

 Sir John Oldcastle - ultimatepubguide.com
You'll be as surprised as I am to learn there is actually a word called 'Lollardry' (or Lollardy), and you'll be as equally enthralled (or disinterested) to learn that Lollardry was a movement for ecclesiastical reform, which undoubtedly weakened the English medieval church's hold on the people.
Sir John Oldcastle was a leader of Lollardry and friend of Henry V who was condemned for heresy in the early 15th century, escaped from the Tower of London, was recaptured and executed by hanging over a slow fire.
Some people would consider execution by hanging over a slow fire a much more preferable experience than setting foot in a JD Wetherspoon establishment, but if you're a hardened elbow-bender, a surveyor of the highway, a piss-head, you'll be familiar with the Wetherspoon experience from which the Sir John Oldcastle pub in Farringdon deviates little.

These are drawn from the Legenda or Lections, given in the special Office, which the nuns of Hampole prepared in the hope of his canonization.

While Lollardry was effectively stamped out in the early 1400's, it re-emerged with a vengeance when Protestantism was introduced into England in the 1510's.
   The most important thing about Lollardry and the general anti-clericalism of the fourteenth century is that it founded a new culture deliberately resistant to the dominant, homogenizing culture of the church.
This new anti-clerical culture led a number of theologians, writers, and poets in England to begin to speculate about the nature of society, government, economics and human institutions and to forge radically new ideas on all these fronts.

 What Is Protestantism?
Particularly since the Oxford movement of the 19th cent., many Anglicans have rejected the word Protestant because they tend to agree with Roman Catholicism on most doctrinal points, rejecting, however, the primacy of the pope (England, Church of; Episcopal Church; Ireland, Church of).
In addition, there have been several groups commonly called Protestant but historically preceding the rise of Protestantism (Hussites; Lollardry; Waldenses).
Protestantism has largely been adopted by the peoples of NW Europe and their descendants, excepting the southern Germans, Irish, French, and Belgians; there have been important Protestant minorities in France, Bohemia, Hungary, and Poland.
