Or did he boot any at all?

Not that I’m aware of.

As far as I know Wycliffe translated from the Vulgate, not the Hebrew and Greek. Would he have had any reason to drop any books?

He didn’t boot any - as an inspection of the 1850 reprint by Forshall & Madden of the two earliest Wycliffite Bibles shows.

I hope a myth is is not in the making here :slight_smile:

I think that is right, he included everything that was in the Vulgate-he just really misinterpreted it.
