ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Desiderius Erasmus Roterodamus was a Dutch Renaissance humanist, Catholic priest, and a theologian.
Erasmus was a classical scholar who wrote in a pure Latin style and enjoyed the sobriquet "Prince of the Humanists." He has been called "the crowning glory of the Christian humanists." Using humanist techniques for working on texts, he prepared important new Latin and Greek editions of the New Testament. These raised questions that would be influential in the Protestant Reformation and Catholic Counter-Reformation.
