The correspondence of Erasmus letters 2357 to 2471 August 1530-March 1531 by Desiderius Erasmus( )

13 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 165 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Many of the letters in this volume, which covers the period August 1530 to March 1531, reflect Erasmus' anxieties over events at the Diet of Augsburg (June-November 1530), at which the first of many attempts to achieve a negotiated settlement of the religious division in Germany came to a rancorous conclusion, thus fostering the fear that religious controversy would eventually lead to war. His other chief concerns were the continued attacks on him by Catholic critics who regarded him as a clandestine Lutheran, and the insistence of many evangelical reformers that he was their spiritual father. The literary output of the period covered includes major works aimed at members of both groups

The correspondence of Erasmus by Desiderius Erasmus( )

3 editions published in 2020 in English and held by 105 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the months covered by this volume, Erasmus experienced sharply deteriorating health and thoughts of approaching death, although he remained active in the promotion of good causes and the defence of his good name. The seemingly imminent threat of religious civil war in Germany affected Erasmus in two ways. First, he made up his mind to leave Germany and return to his native Brabant. However, the arrival in 1533 of a formal invitation from Queen Mary, regent of the Netherlands, coincided with the onset of chronic ill health that would last until the end of his life. Repeated postponements eventually led to an abandonment of the journey altogether. Second, Erasmus did what he could to promote the cause of religious unity. In On Mending the Peace of the Church he urged rulers to enact moderate reforms that would satisfy all parties and avoid confessional division. When Martin Luther responded to this attempt at a "middle path" between "truth and error" in his Letter Concerning Erasmus of Rotterdam (1534), denouncing Erasmus as a skeptic and not a Christian, Erasmus responded indignantly with his Purgation against the Slanderous Letter of Luther. Erasmus' only other work published in this period turned out to be one of his most popular, On Preparing for Death

Collaboration, conflict, and continuity in the Reformation : essays in honour of James M. Estes on his eightieth birthday( Book )

5 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 62 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For several decades James M. Estes has been pointing to the complexity of the problems facing sixteenth-century reformers and the practical solutions they were able to reach. The career of Johannes Brenz, who successfully laid the foundations for a territorial Church in Württemberg, the careful analytical thinking of Philip Melanchthon, who sought (but failed) to reach an accord with the Catholic side, and the incessant correspondence of Desiderius Erasmus, the Prince of Humanists, who saw the liberal arts as the solution to this world's problems, all serve as guideposts for Estes' career as a scholar, but also for this collection of articles in his honour.
