Author - Erasmus (Introduction by John Dolan)

Containing most of Erasmus’ works in one volume, “The Essential Erasmus” is essential reading for those who want to understand the wide breath of Christianity that was the religious standard for the Western world four hundred years ago.  A Catholic humanist, Erasmus resisted his brethren who left to start Protestant movements.  At the same time, he worked with the church hierarchy to encourage change and repentance.  Essays in this collection include the full text of his most famous work, “The Praise of Folly,” as well as “The Handbook of the Militant Christian,” “Concerning the Immense Mercy of God,” etc.  Scholar John Dolan translated the text and wrote the Introduction to this collection.
