Essays on Religion and Theology in the Work of Charles Taylor.
—. John Wyclif: Scriptural Logic, Real Presence, and the Parameters of Orthodoxy. Milwuakee: Marquette University Press, 2003. [This study offers an appraisal of John Wyclif’s theology within the context of some larger medieval developments of scholasticism, none of which can be isolated from one another. Levy focuses upon Wyclif’s eucharistic theology and its intersection with his understanding of Scripture. In so doing, Levy identifies two central points about Wyclif: his sense of commitment to the larger continuum of Catholic tradition, and his placement of Christ, the Incarnate Word, at the heart of that tradition. Scripture, for Wyclif, is ultimately identified with the Eternal Word, and proper devotion to the Eucharist is reverence for the Word Made Flesh who instituted this sacrament. At the center of Wyclif’s theology there is always a Living Person.]

Yet he had become disillusioned with a Christian society that exploited these traditions to pursue destructive policies of repression and conquest, thereby forsaking the eternal Law of Christ. For Wyclif, the Law of Christ calls upon Christians to conform themselves to the poor and humble Christ of the Gospels. While he never rejected the possibility of a just war in principle, he believed that it was all but impossible in practice. Even where a nation might have a just claim, the better path is always the way of Christ, suffering evil patiently rather than inflicting sufferings upon one’s neighbor.]
