Desiderius Erasmus
Erasmus may now be said to have reached the acme of his fame; he was in high repute throughout all Europe, and was regarded as an oracle both by princes and scholars. Every one felt it an honour to enter into correspondence with him. His inborn vanity and self-complacency were thereby increased almost to the point of becoming a disease; at the same time he sought, often by the grossest flattery, to obtain the favour and material support of patrons or to secure the continuance of such benefits. This was also the period of his greatest literary productivity. He wrote at this time works destined to influence profoundly the ecclesiastical revolution Constance textus receptus The literary works issued by Erasmus up to this time made him the intellectual father of the Reformation. What the Reformation destroyed in the organic life of the Church Erasmus had already openly or covertly subverted in a moral sense in his "Praise of Folly", his "Adagia", and "Colloquia", by his pitiless sarcasm or by his cold scepticism. Like his teacher Lorenzo Valla, he regarded Scholasticism as the greatest perversion of the religious spirit; according to him this degeneration dated from the primitive Christological controversies, which caused the Church to lose its evangelical simplicity and become the victim of hair-splitting philosophy, which culminated in Scholasticism. With the latter there appeared in the Church that Pharisaism which based righteousness on good works and monastic sanctity, and on a ceremonialism beneath whose weight the

Erasmus Desiderius
Erasmus Desiderius was a Dutch priest and Scholar who sought to reform the Roman Catholic church. At first he supported Marin Luther and other leaders of the Reformation. However, Erasmus favored the idea of unity of Christianity. He refused to endorse the idea of a separate church. His efforts failed to create a moderate ground between the Catholics and the Protestants. Erasmus was born in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. Erasmus was sent to school. He was taught by Hegius at Deventer, who taught him the humanist philosophy. His parents died. He was sent to live with other relatives. Erasmus was forced to enter a monastery by his guardians. Erasmus left the monastery to be the secretary for the Bishop of Cambrai Erasmus was sent to Paris by the Bishop of Cambrai to complete his studies. Erasmus was ordained a priest. Erasmus traveled to England. There he met John Colet and Thomas Moore. They persuaded him to focus on his biblical studies. Erasmus presented his Handbook of a Christian Soldier. His philosophy of Christ stressed piety, morality, and dedication to truth.

BIOGRAPHY OF ERASMUS I assume that even if you don't know it, you can easily guess that Erasmus stands for EuRopean Action Scheme for the Mobility of University Students. But did you ever ask yourself whether there was some other reason why the Erasmus Programme was given this name? If yes, then the next question you probably asked yourself was "Who was Erasmus?". The part that follows contains a short biography of Erasmus, that should be enough to answer this second question. As about the first one, make your own conclusions afterwards. Erasmus Desiderius Roterodamus -that means Beloved (in Hellenic and in Latin)- was born in Rotterdam, Holland in Oct 27, 1466 and died in Basel, Switzerland in July 12, 1536. He was the second son of Roger Gerard, a priest, and Margaret, a physician's daughter, and was most probably born out of wedlock. He lost both his parents when he was 9, and his guardians then sent him to a church school in Deventer, and then to other monastic schools, where he was given the best education possible for those times. In 1492 he became a priest, though he never really meant to exercise priesthood. He was rather disgusted by the corruption of the church and the way church and its militarism affected on people's minds, but he preferred to remain a Roman Catholic, so that he could fight against all this from the inside, while also being able to receive higher education. By the time he took the priestly vows, Erasmus lived on as a scholar, independent of country, religion and everything that could interfere with the free development of his intellect and his literary expression. Erasmus travelled from one country to another and became popular among the people of thought for his effort to combine faith with reason and the classic greek and roman culture into a new way of christian life. He was offered many honorable positions in the academic world, but declined them all, choosing to continue travelling on and stirring more people to thinking. He met and befriended important people of his days, like John Colet and Thomas More in England, Aldus Manutius in Italy, Froben in Switzerland, people that contributed to his popularity by publishing his writs.

Erasmus von Rotterdam, auch Erasmus Desiderius, (1466 oder 1469 bis 1536) Niederländischer Theologe und Gelehrter, einer der bedeutendsten Humanisten Erasmus wurde als unehelicher Sohn des Priesters Roger Gerard und einer Arzttochter am 28. Oktober 1466 (oder 1469) in Rotterdam geboren. 1. Leben
In Deventer und Herzogenbusch besuchte er Ordensschulen und trat nach dem Tod seiner Eltern in das Augustinerkloster Steyn bei Gouda ein. Nach seiner Priesterweihe im Jahr 1492 wurde er Sekretär des Bischofs von Cambrai , der ihn zum Studium der Theologie nach Paris schickte. Im Rahmen seiner theologischen Studien entwickelte er sich immer mehr zum Kritiker der erstarrten Scholastik. Erasmus blieb nicht im Kloster, sondern widmete sich einem weltlichen Broterwerb; vom Papst wurde er von seinem Ordensgelübde entbunden.
Ab 1499 begab er sich auf zahlreiche Reisen nach Italien, England und in die Schweiz. Seinen Lebensunterhalt bestritt er als Privatlehrer. In diesen Jahren entstanden einige seiner Schriften, und er pflegte stets eine umfangreiche Korrespondenz - (etwa 1 500 seiner über 3 000 Briefe sind erhalten) - mit den wichtigsten Persönlichkeiten seiner Zeit. Auf einer seiner Reisen nach England lernte Erasmus auch Thomas More kennen ( Abbildung: Porträt von Hans Holbein dem Jüngeren ). Während eines Aufenthalts in Italien erwarb

This drawing is Hans Holbien's Portrait of Erasmus, which he drew in a margin of Frobien's copy of the Praise of Folly. Erasmus, when he visited Frobien, saw the drawing and wrote above it that if he were as handsome as Holbien depicted, then he should not be wanting for a wife. Holbien also painted a more formal and involved portrait of Erasmus , again at his desk. did an engraving along the same lines that Erasmus was not very impressed with at all. Erasmus wrote a friend that the engraving looked nothing like him. This might be explained, he noted, by the fact that the engraving was done in 1526 from a sketch

Back to Table of Contents
Writings Erasmus has been most widely known for his critical and satirical writings, such as the Praise of Folly (Paris, 1509) and many of the Colloquia, which appeared at intervals from 1500 on. These appeal to a wider audience and deal with matters of wider human interest. Yet their author seems to have regarded them as the trifles of his intellectual product, the play of his leisure hours. His more serious writings begin early with the Enchiridion Alilitis Christioni, the Manual (or Dagger) of the Christian Gentleman (1503). In this little volume Erasmus outlines the views of the normal Christian life which he was to spend the rest of his days in elaborating. The key-note of it all is sincerity. The chief evil of the day, he says, is formalism, a respect for traditions, a regard for what other people think essential, but never a thought of what the true teaching of Christ may be. The remedy is for every man to ask himself at each point: what is the essential thing? and to do this without fear. Forms are not in themselves evil. It is only when they hide or quench the spirit that they are to be dreaded. In his examination of the special dangers of formalism, Erasmus pays his respects to monasticism, saint-worship, war, the spirit of class, the foibles of " society," in the fashion which was to make his later reputation as a satirist, but the main impression of the Enchiridion is distinctly that of a sermon. A companion piece to the Enchiridion is the

Desiderius Erasmus, 1466-1536
In 1500 he was again in France, and for the next six years lived chiefly at Paris. To this period belong his Adagia and Enchiridion Militis Christiani . In 1506 he made a short visit to England, carried out a long-desired journey to Italy, and at Padua acted as tutor to Alexander, Archbishop of St. Andrews, natural son of James IV of Scotland. His visit closed with a short stay in Rome, whence he carried away a far more friendly impression than did Luther when he made his visit. The accession of Henry VIII, and the invitation of Lord Mountjoy, induced Erasmus once more to make England his home. In his satire, Encomium Moriae (1509), we have him in his happiest vein, as the man of letters and the critic of kings and churchmen. Erasmus resided chiefly at Cambridge, where he acted as Margaret professor of Divinity and professor of Greek. After 1514 he lived alternatively in Basel and England, and from 1517 to 1521 at Louvain. In 1519 appeared the first edition of his Colloquia , usually regarded as his masterpiece. The audacity and incisiveness with which it handles the abuses of the Church prepared men's minds for the subsequent work of Martin Luther.
