This two-volume work, published in the Rolls Series in 1860, is valuable for both religious and linguistic history. A vernacular text written in a period of division within the Church and widespread popular religious discontent, it provides a record of the arguments that fuelled this division. Reginald Pecock (c.1392–c.1459) recounts the attacks made by Lollard reformers and provides well-composed answers to them. A firm believer in papal supremacy, Pecock insisted on proving doctrine by reason, a position which laid him open to the charges of heresy that dogged his career and eventually led to his disgrace. Editor Charles Babington's introduction to this edition gives biographical and contextual information, and a summary of the works contained within both volumes. As well as The Repressor itself, the work contains related texts in Latin, both attacking and vindicating Pecock and his position.
