Erasmus and the Age of Reformation

Front Cover
Courier Corporation, 2011 - Biography & Autobiography - 197 pages
5 Reviews
In the 16th century, Erasmus was one of the most celebrated figures in Europe - a man of such vast learning that both royalty and universities petitioned for his services. In this very readable biography, a noted scholar traces Erasmusís youth, his years as an itinerant scholar, sojourns in England, France, Switzerland, and Italy, friendship with Sir Thomas More, and disputes with Martin Luther. The author also probes Erasmusís mind and character and discusses his writings, including In Praise of Folly and his great translation of the New Testament.

Review: Erasmus and the Age of Reformation

User Review  - Avery - Goodreads

This book gets a bad rap as being boring, but I think Huizinga does well to show us how Erasmus presaged the Reformation and gives us a nice social history of the age he lived in. Get it from Gutenberg. Read full review
