A propos de cet article

Language: English . Brand New Book. 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. Observing the influence of classical, biblical, patristic, scholastic, and late medieval vernacular and popular sources on Erasmus writing, the author provides comparisons with theologians Agrippa, Lefevre d Etaples, Eck, Luther, and Zwingli to demonstrate not only the singularity of Erasmus intellect, but also the enormous impact he had on the Reformation. The result is a lively picture of the man and his time, in which Erasmus emerges as both a devout Christian and a critical seeker of truth who conceded the ambiguities that he could not resolve.

Synopsis :

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 Christvon Wedel s well-received 2003 study, originally published in German. Observing the influence of classical, biblical, patristic, scholastic, and late medieval vernacular and popular sources on Erasmus writing, the author provides comparisons with theologians Agrippa, Lefèvre d Étaples, Eck, Luther, and Zwingli to demonstrate not only the singularity of Erasmus intellect, but also the enormous impact he had on the Reformation. The result is a lively picture of the man and his time, in which Erasmus emerges as both a devout Christian and a critical seeker of truth who conceded the ambiguities that he could not resolve.

Critique:

'This will become a standard book to introduce students of theology, scripture, and peace studies to a scholar who knows no boundaries and consistently sought to resolve conflicts by shedding new light on their origins... Essential.' -- D.A. Brown Choice Magazine - vol 51:04:2013 'Christine-von Wedel carefully harnesses Erasmus's work as a scholar to a program of religious reform within the Catholic tradition... Students of Christian humanism have much to gain from this comprehensive study.' -- Ralph Keen Renaissance Quarterly vol 67:03:2014
