More About Desiderius Erasmus, Anne Reeve & M. A. Screech
Desiderius Erasmus, (bornOctober 27, 1469, Rotterdam, Holland diedJuly 12, 1536, Basel, Switzerland) was the greatest scholar of the northern Renaissance, the first editor of theNew Testament, and an important figure in classical literature.He helped lay the groundwork for the historical-critical study of the past, and his educational writings contributed to the replacement of the older scholastic curriculum by the new humanist emphasis on the classics. By criticizing ecclesiastical abuses, he encouraged the growing urge for reform, andhis independent stance in an age of fierce controversymade him a target of suspicion for loyal partisans on both sides and a beacon for those who valued liberty over orthodoxy.
