Andreae Alciati Contra vitam monasticam epistula = Andrea Alciato's Letter against monastic life by Andrea Alciati( Book )

11 editions published between 2013 and 2017 in English and Latin and held by 61 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Criticism of monastic life by one of Europe's major Renaissance figures. In his letter Against Monastic Life (1514-17) Andrea Alciato, an Italian jurist and writer famous for his Emblemata, urges his friend Bernardus Mattius to reconsider his choice of monastic life. Alciato makes his argument by criticizing religious superstition, the Church's hierarchy, and monastic practices, particularly the Franciscans' hypocrisy, wealth, and divisiveness. Instead, he defends a stoic, civic humanism. Due to the troubled history of this unique manuscript and the inadequacies of the two subsequent editions, Alciato's discourse has been obscured for centuries. This edition and translation seeks to make clear the biographical importance of the text for one of the major figures of the European Renaissance. Bron: Flaptekst, uitgeversinformatie

Collected works of Erasmus. Adages by Desiderius Erasmus( Book )

7 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This fifth of seven volumes on the Adages continues from where the Collected Works of Erasmus volume 34 left off and includes 900 more adages from III iv 1 to IV ii 100. The aim of the Adages volumes in the CWE is to provide a fully annotated, accurate, and readable English version of the more than 4000 adages gathered, and commented on by Erasmus, sometimes in a few lines and sometimes in full-scale essays. Following in the tradition of meticulous scholarship for which the Collected Works of Erasmus is widely known, the notes to this volume identify the classical sources and illustrate how Erasmus' reading and thinking developed over twenty-five years, a period spanned by eight revisions of the first edition of the work which appeared in 1508 and won immediate acclaim. Many of the proverbs cited by Erasmus are still in use today
