Fun Fact: Heretic John Oldcastle

Fun facts about Christianity in England

John Oldcastle was a pre-Protestant Christian in England who led the Lollard movement in England which sought to reform the Christian church in the country. He was a friend of King Henry IV, and avoided the charges of heresy for many years. He was in open rebellion during the reign of his friend’s son King Henry V. After years in hiding, he was finally captured and killed. His body was burned into ashes, but it is unclear if he was alive when that happened or it was done after-the-fact.
