Popis This paper is a case study that aims to analyse and compare two Lollard social networks. Both networks will be modelled according to data from trial records with heresy suspects, the first one from Coventry between the years 1486 and 1522, the second one from Kent between 1511 and 1512. The focus will be on the heretics involved, represented by nodes, their attributes (such as gender, age, occupation, and marital status), and all the interactions and relationships mentioned in their trial records, represented by ties between them. The paper will first present the demography of Lollards from the two localities and descriptive statistics of the networks. Then it will use social network analysis to explore the importance of particular historical actors as well as categories of actors (defined by their attributes) in their respective networks. This importance will be measured by various centrality metrics based on the ties between the actors, with a particular focus on the role of kinship and marriage ties, as well as the role of gender. Finally, a comparison of the two networks will be made with the intention of finding the structural similarities and differences between them, and explaining the patterns found within them.
