Erasmus and the Age of Reformation
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 Erasmus’s 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 Erasmus’s mind and character and discusses his writings, including In Praise of Folly and his great translation of the New Testament.
