Desiderius Erasmus was one of the most influential writers of his time and widely acclaimed as the principal Northern humanist. He was, however, not only a man of letters but also a shrewd observer of society, a sharp critic of the institutional church, and a scholar on the cutting edge of biblical studies. Although not a systematic philosopher or theologian, he left his stamp on the intellectual milieu of his time and was regarded by Catholic apologists as the inspirational source of the Lutheran reformation. In this book, Erika Rummel introduces readers to Erasmus' ideas on education, piety, social order, and the epistemology underpinning his thought. The educational programme proposed by Erasmus aims at creating a Christian humanist, speaking with Ciceronian eloquence and breathing the spirit of the gospel. The perfect piety envisaged by Erasmus involves a progression from the observance of rites to inner devotion and a love of Christ that guides every action. The ideal social order, according to Erasmus, is hierarchical. He depicts the three estates arranged in concentric circles around Christ, with the clergy closest to him, followed by the nobility and the common people. The Christian prince reflects the qualities of God, whose steward he is.

Review:

“...an erudite, compact, critical retrieval of this prolific Christian humanist...To read Rummel is to meet the living Erasmus.” –Catholic Books Review, 2005 (Catholic Books Review)

"To read Rummel is tomeet the living Erasmus."- John Lounibos, CatholicBooks Review, January 2006
(Catholic Books Review)

....Erika Rummel, a prolific and well-respected scholar and Erasmus specialist, has with this small book produced a first-rate introduction to him as a Christian thinker. After two introductory chapters, she analyzes Erasmus's thought on poetry, the social order, biblical exegesis, and the importance of consensus in arriving at doctrinal truth. She examines that last topic through Erasmus's dispute with Luther. This book is highly recommended." —Theology Today, April 2006



“To read Rummel is tomeet the living Erasmus.”- John Lounibos, CatholicBooks Review, January 2006
(Catholic Books Review)
