So would you include John Huss, Theodore Beza, and Philip Melanchthon in the list?
Most certainly would. John Wickliffe is known as the morning star of the Reformation.

Hus was burned at the stake by the Catholic church on July 6, 1415. Hus sang hymns while he died. You may have heard the phrase, "your goose is cooked". This was first coined from the martyrdom of this reformer. Hus' name in German sounded like "goose". Thus, as he was burned, they coined the term "Hus is cooked (or, “your goose is cooked)" in German. Yet, Hus said to the Archbishop during his trial, that though he--the goose--be burned at the stake, another will come--a swan--to teach and preach the doctrines of the Bible; to finish the work of reformation which had begun. This swan would be no other than Martin Luther in the early 1500’s... http://www.apuritansmind.com/Reformation/Reformation.htm

Then there is William Tyndale, Luther, Zwingli, Calvin, and Knox. Here is a link to Reformation Wall in Geneva. See the men listed here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reformation_Wall
