In March 1411 Oxford University sent to archbishop Arundel a list of 267 extracts from the writings of John Wyclif which they regarded as heretical. In Oxford Magdalen College MS lat.99 appears some preliminary work towards the compilation of that list, work which throws light on the way in which the material was assembled. The paper considers this, and other, evidence for the collection in Oxford of the erroneous statements from Wyclif's works. It further traces the ways in which the list gained further currency, as it was conveyed to the Council of Constance to form the core of the Council's condemnation of Wyclif in 1415. The use made in the 1420s by Thomas Netter in his Doctrinale, his refutation of Wyclif and his followers, gave the list later notoriety.
