Notes: In his own day a center of controversy, in the four hundred years since his death known too often solely as an apostle of mockery and irreverence, Erasmus can be seen today in a new light-as a humanist whose concern is at once contemporary and Christian. The Essential Erasmus is the first single volume in English to show the full spectrum of this Renaissance man's thought, which is no less profound because it is expressed with the grace, wit, and ironic detachment only a great writer can achieve. Contains the full text of In Praise of Folly.
Description: 397 pages ; 21 cm
Contents: The life of Erasmus --
The handbook of the militant Christian --
The praise of folly --
The complaint of peace --
An inquiry concerning faith --
Concerning the immense mercy of God --
Concerning the eating of fish --
On mending the peace of the Church.
Responsibility: selected and translated with introduction and commentary by John P. Dolan.
