The confessionalization of humanism in Reformation Germany by Erika Rummel ( )
14 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 1,120 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book deals with the impact of the Reformation debate in Germany on the most prominent intellectual movement of the time: humanism. Although it is true that humanism influenced the course of the Reformation, says Erika Rummel, the dynamics of the relationship are better described by saying that humanism was co-opted, perhaps even exploited, in the religious debate
Biblical humanism and scholasticism in the age of Erasmus by Erika Rummel ( )
11 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 1,042 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Throughout the Middle Ages, dialectical disputation was the prevailing method of scholarly inquiry. Offering a different reading of the humanist-scholastic debate over biblical humanism, this book describes manifestations of the controversy, ranging from its beginnings in quattrocento Italy to Germany, Spain, France, and the Netherlands

The case against Johann Reuchlin religious and social controversy in sixteenth-century Germany by Erika Rummel ( )
10 editions published between 2002 and 2009 in English and held by 1,027 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The case of Johannes Reuchlin, one of the best-known controversies of the 16th century, has been interpreted in many ways: as a case of anti-Semitism, a controversy between humanists and scholastics, or a case foreshadowing the Reformation debate. The last interpretation was facilitated by Luther himself, who repeatedly linked his case with that of the biblical humanists LefFvre, Erasmus, and Reuchlin. In this critical analysis, Erika Rummel describes how the second interpretation, which was promoted in the 19th century, was replaced after World War II by a new sensitivity toward the anti-Semitic elements of the affair. More recently, however, the favoured approach is a more nuanced interpretation, acknowledging that the controversy is informed by a combination of social and intellectual currents and reflects both anti-Semitism and academic strife. The section containing the analysis is followed by documents illustrating the case translated into English

Editing texts from the age of Erasmus papers given at the thirtieth annual Conference on Editorial Problems, University of Toronto, 4-5 November 1994 by Conference on Editorial Problems ( )
14 editions published between 1994 and 2008 in English and Italian and held by 760 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The editing of texts remains an important professional task for both the historian and the literary scholar. Originally presented at the Thirtieth Annual Conference on Editorial Problems held at the University of Toronto in November 1994 the six essays in this collection reflect on three successfully completed editing projects - the editions of the registers of the Faculty of Theology at the University of Paris, the registers of the Company of Pastors of Geneva in the time of Calvin, and The Complete Works of Thomas More. They also explore new initiatives, namely, the Independent Works of Tyndale, the records of the Consistory of Geneva, and the Peter Martyr Library; and provide an opportunity for stock-taking in two ongoing projects, the Opera Omnia Des. Erasmi published at Amsterdam and The Collected Works of Erasmus published at Toronto.While focusing mainly on these particular editions and translations, the contributors also address such common issues as the problem of authorship, the difficulty of deciphering manuscript sources, the identification of minor historical figures, tracing quotations, and the need to produce idiomatically correct modern translations without diverging from the wording of the original source. In addition, the contributors offer valuable insights into the nature and process of scholarly collaboration and informed comment on the circumstances that allow such endeavours to flourish
Erasmus on women by Desiderius Erasmus ( Book )
11 editions published between 1996 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 676 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Although the texts in this collection are by a single author, they offer a kaleidoscope of views current in the Renaissance. Erasmus' comments on women range from ad hoc remarks in his letters to lengthy treatises on marriage and widowhood, from lively dialogues with a mixed cast of virgins and mothers, housewives and harlots, to a funeral oration for a matriarch. Because Erasmus appropriates a variety of voices, the texts offer a mixture of traditional and progressive thought."--BOOK JACKET
The humanist-scholastic debate in the Renaissance & Reformation by Erika Rummel ( Book )
15 editions published between 1995 and 1998 in English and held by 632 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In the last half of the fifteenth century, the classic Platonic debate over the respective merits of rhetoric and philosophy was replayed in the debate between humanists and scholastics over philology and dialectic. The intense dispute between representatives of the two camps fueled many of the most important intellectual developments of the Renaissance and Reformation. Erika Rummel delves into the extensive primary sources of the times, bringing the issues and their continuing legacy to light and making a valuable contribution to our understanding of the intellectual climate of early modern Europe." "Rummel demonstrates how the passionately fought issue of the period changed focus as humanists such as Lorenzo Valla and Desiderius Erasmus applied philological skills to Scripture. The controversy over form versus content entered a new phase, pitting humanists trained as philologists against scholastic theologians trained as dialecticians. Rummel shows us the framework for the debate still intact as the medium/message dichotomy, and traces its development into quarrels over qualification and entitlement in the academy, as theologians and humanists disputed the intellectual and territorial boundaries of their respective disciplines. Finally, in the first half of the sixteenth century we see the controversy entering the sphere of doctrinal dispute. The question of authority became centered not only on professional competence but also on the more explosive issues of faith and Christian teaching." "This in-depth study will reclaim the attention of those who believe these debates were merely personal and episodic. Rummel's innovative research provides ample evidence that the polemics of the age arose from a fundamental conflict over methodology and the freedom to pursue research."--BOOK JACKET
