The Correspondence of Erasmus
Full Product Description
He was developing influential friends across Europe, and in Germany especially he gained enthusiastic admirers who expected him to join in the defence of Johann Reuchlin and made certain that he became promptly acquainted with the Ninety-five Theses of Luther whose name Erasmus at first still had trouble remembering. This volume is of particular interest because more than half the letters derive from the Deventer Letter-book, into which Erasmus had his amaneunses copy incoming and outgoing letters, among them many which were truly private rather than composed with a mind to subsequent publication. As a result we become intimately acquainted with the daily life of Erasmus and his friends, with the domestic pleasures and annoyances, private worries and hopes that made up and continue to make up the substance of human existance.
The Correspondence of Erasmus by Desiderius Erasmus was published by University of Toronto Press in January 1979. The ISBN for The Correspondence of Erasmus is 9780802054296.
