This edition of the complete works of Erasmus of Rotterdam is arranged according to the division into nine ordines which Erasmus himself laid down for the posthumous publication of his collected works. Each ordo is devoted to a specific literary or thematic category. In this edition, each text is preceded by an historical introduction, and is accompanied by two sets of notes: an apparatus criticus (i.e. the text-critical notes) and a commentary, in which Erasmus' sources are identified and references to contemporary persons and events clarified.
