Erasmus of Rotterdam wrote the essay The Praise of Folly during a week at Sir Thomas More's estate in Bucklersbury. He later refined and extended the piece. In it he personifies Folly as a god, whose companions are likewise-personified sins and human weaknesses. His work criticizes the Catholic Church, and culminates in a statement of Christian ideals. Erasmus was a faithful Catholic, but his text is considered a catalyst to the Protestant movement

Moriae encomium, or, The praise of folly by Desiderius Erasmus( Book )

9 editions published between 1668 and 1961 in English and held by 122 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In writing Encomium Moriae, Erasmus wrote a satire. This satire takes the form of an oration by the goddess Folly, who is represented as declaiming from a pulpit upon the delights which await those who follow in her path. No class in the Renaissance world is spared in her harangue: kings, courtiers, authors, scholars, priests, and bishops -- all conditions of men feel the lash of her tongue. This was the Erasmian way of showing the world how it could "set itself free from its own ignorance." - Heritage Club Sandglass no. X:17
