Erasmus Studies

A prolific essayist who lived and wrote against the backdrop of the European Reformation, Erasmus (1466-1536) was a teacher, theologian, classicist, and humanist of the Dutch Renaissance whose investigations spanned everything from political theory, literature, and civility in children to definitions of free will, Christian ethics, and the philosophy of education. Studies in this series place Erasmus's writings in the wider context of his life and times, offering penetrating insights into why modern writers have called him "the crowning glory of the Christian humanists."
