Lollards were a group of religious dissenters who followed John Wyclith’s teachings. They took the bible literally. If the ceremony or a belief was not in the bible it was not accepted. This included the Catholic church practices such as Holy relics, pilgrimages, indulgences and the veneration of saints.

The Lollards became quite popular with many in England when they suggested the church lands be confiscated and divided up among the populace in 1410.

The Catholic Church declared the Lollards heretics.
