Description

Erasmus ranges from gentle-hearted jibes to vehement denunciation of the theologians and churchmen, monastic life and the condition of the Church, after which seriously expounds the virtues of the Christian way of living. This work is among the best possible satirical classics of the Renaissance. It was once very widely read in Erasmus’s lifetime or even these days reads amusingly and instructively, having lost none of its fire and little or no of its relevance. The pointy criticism provoked by it was once answered by Erasmus in his Letter to Martin Dorp, the theologian, which is included here.
