The English Mystics

  • H. Maynard Smith

Abstract

The Lollards attacked the Church as an institution—her wealth and power. The humanists attacked her theology, which had become arid, sophistical and out-of-date. The mystics attacked no one, but unintentionally sapped the foundations of a sacerdotal Church which expressed itself in sacraments and social ordinances.
