This book provides the first analysis of the development of Erasmus’ historical methodology and its impact on Roman Catholic and Protestant theologians. Combining a biography
of Erasmus with the larger theological debates and the intellectual history of his time, Christine Christ-von Wedel reveals many of previously unexplored influences on Erasmus, as well as his
influences on his contemporaries.
Erasmus of Rotterdam is a revised and considerably enlarged translation of Christ-von Wedel’s well-received 2003 study, originally published in German.

“Christine Christ-von Wedel’s careful research and penetrating analysis have produced a study with many gems and that throws new light on Erasmus’ work.

Bietenholz, Professor Emeritus, Department of History, University of Saskatchewan)
“A stimulating and important book, Erasmus of Rotterdam is a valuable contribution to Erasmus and early modern studies. Christine Christ-von Wedel’s range of scholarship is most impressive.”(Jane Phillips, Professor of Classics, Department of Modern and Classical Languages, University of Kentucky)
“Erasmus of Rotterdam is an admirable, intellectually stimulating introduction to Erasmus’ theology. Adding a fresh and clear voice to the chorus of scholars who have brought us biographies of Erasmus, it will resonate with and shape a new generation of Erasmus scholars.”(Hilmar Pabel, Department of History, Simon Fraser University)
