Item Description...
Collected Works of Erasmus ... thoughtfully designed to include major statements of Erasmus on civility in individual morals, humanistic study and education, the Christian life, reform of the church, and the peaceful constraint of political force. It is to my mind the most comprehensive and penetrating anthology of Erasmus' writing, forcefully revealing his central values." - Charles Trinkaus, Emeritus Professor of History, University of Michigan

'Rummel's collection makes available readable translations of Erasmus' most original and influential works - the books that made him the intellectual conscience of his generation of scholars and the inspiration of many Reformers who took positions he did not accept. They reveal the biblical scholar, the humanist and literary theorist, and the social critic that Erasmus was, far more fully and vividly than any previous anthology.' - Anthony Grafton, Program in History of Science, Princeton University

'The high quality of the Toronto edition of the Collected Works of Erasmus has earned it a central place in the libraries of scholars around the world. The Erasmus Reader extends this impact to the carrels and desks of beginning and advanced students of Renaissance and Reformation history.' - Heiko A. Oberman, Director, Division for Late Medieval and Reformation Studies, University of Arizona

Reviews - What do our customers think?
An Impressive Intellect  Nov 1, 2006
In this volume a reader can take in Erasmus as he tackles questions ranging from warfare between Christian kingdoms to the place of classical rhetoric in Christian education to what to do when one must break wind at a banquet table. Each essay has Erasmus's gentle, deliberative touch, and Rummel's translation of "In Praise of Folly" is the best that I've encountered.

The book's binding has held up for nearly ten years now, and Rummel's translations convey a smoothness and learned style that make each of the great humanist's pieces a joy to read. These short pieces have become welcome respites to enjoy in my own breaks from the ardor of Calvin and the fury of Milton.
