Editorial Reviews:

Synopsis: The name Erasmus of Rotterdam conjures up a golden age of scholarly integrity. However, as Lisa Jardine portrays him, Erasmus self-consciously created his own reputation as the central figure of the European intellectual world. The name Erasmus of Rotterdam conjures up a golden age of scholarly integrity. However, as Lisa Jardine portrays him, Erasmus self-consciously created his own reputation as the central figure of the European intellectual world.


Review: "'Erasmus, Man of Letters' may inspire skepticism about Erasmus's alleged sincerity, but it is hard not to feel increased admiration for the energy and ingenuity with which the indefatigable scholar continued to combine so successful a publicity campaign with his countless other literary achievements."

Alastair Hamilton, Times Literary Supplement
