Utopia by Thomas More( )

22 editions published between 1995 and 2014 in English and held by 1,986 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First published in 1516, Saint Thomas More's Utopia is one of the most important works of European humanism. Through the voice of the mysterious traveler Raphael Hythloday, More describes a pagan, communist city-state governed by reason. Addressing such issues as religious pluralism, women's rights, state-sponsored education, colonialism, and justified warfare, Utopia seems remarkably contemporary nearly five centuries after it was written, and it remains a foundational text in philosophy and political theory. Preeminent More scholar Clarence H. Miller does justice to the full range of More's rhetoric in this new translation. Professor Miller includes a helpful introduction that outlines some of the important problems and issues that Utopia raises, and also provides informative commentary to assist the reader throughout this challenging and rewarding exploration of the meaning of political community.

Hyperaspistes by Desiderius Erasmus( )

8 editions published between 2000 and 2009 in English and held by 1,193 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Erasmus' controversies with French, Italian, Spanish, and German critics on theological, social, philological, educational, and other matters are contained in volumes 71-84 of the Collected Works. CWE 76 includes two of his most important disputes with Luther, A Discussion of Free Will and the first part of the Hyperaspistes (usually translated as 'protector' or 'shield-bearer'). Erasmus writes in response to Luther's The Enslaved Will and rebukes Luther for what he considers his arrogance and his insulting charge that Erasmus is an atheist. In CWE 76, Hyperaspistes 1 deals with a number of general considerations in approaching the question of free will. In CWE 77, Hyperaspistes 2 examines in detail the biblical passages put forth in defence of free will in A Discussion of Free Will and Luther's refutation of that defence in The Enslaved Will. In these two volumes of bitter dispute with Luther, Erasmus shows once again that he is a humanist in his theology and a theologian in his humanism."--Résumé de l'éditeur
The praise of folly by Desiderius Erasmus( Book )

18 editions published between 1946 and 2008 in English and English, Middle and held by 1,133 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"First published in Paris in 1511, The Praise of Folly enjoyed enormous and highly controversial success from the author's lifetime down to our own day. The Praise of Folly has no rival, except perhaps Thomas More's Utopia, as the most intense and lively presentation of the literary, social, and theological aims and methods of Northern Humanism. Clarence H. Miller's highly praised translation of The Praise of Folly, based on the definitive Latin text, echoes Erasmus' own lively style while retaining the nuances of the original text. In his Introduction, Miller places the work in the context of Erasmus as humanist and theologian. In a new Afterword, William H. Gass playfully considers the meaning, or meanings, of folly and offers fresh insights into one of the great books of Western literature."--BOOK JACKET

Controversies. ; Clarifications Concerning the Censures Published in Paris in the Name of the Parisian Fac. of Theology by Desiderius Erasmus( )

10 editions published between 2000 and 2016 in English and held by 471 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Erasmus' humanistic approach to theology and biblical exegesis presented a shocking challenge to the theologians at the University of Paris, which had been dominated by scholastic theology for centuries. He engaged in a decade-long controversy over his theological, exegetical, and ethical positions with the Theological Faculty, and especially with their director, Noël Béda.This volume-which translates this crucial quarrel from Latin for the first time-details the formal, wide-ranging attack on Erasmus' theories printed by the faculty in 1531, along with his two replies. Erasmus published his first rebuttal in the spring of 1532, and that fall issued a second edition with substantial revisions and lengthy additions to his original text. With an extensive introduction and detailed commentary by Clarence H. Miller and James K. Farge, this volume highlights the differences between the humanist and scholastic views of genuine theology more fully and extensively than most of Erasmus' other polemical works
Controversies by Desiderius Erasmus( Book )

in English and held by 307 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Among the most important of Erasmus' contributions to Christian humanism were his Greek text, new Latin translation, and annotations of the New Testament, an implicit challenge to the authority of the Vulgate and one that provoked numerous responses. This volume of the Collected Works contains translations of four of Erasmus' responses to his critics, written between 1520 and 1532 and directed primarily to his Franciscan and Dominican contemporaries at the university in Louvain. Three are connected to his Annotations on the New Testament. The fourth, a letter to Christopher von Utenheim, bishop of Basel, deals with pastoral questions such as fasting, abstinence, and the celibacy of priests.Though they mostly deal with philological rather than doctrinal matters, these debates were no less important to Erasmus' work. Carefully and extensively annotated by the translator, Denis L. Drysdall, volume 73 of the Collected Works invites the reader to examine Erasmus' own explanations of his philological method and its theological significance
Utopia : Latin text and an English translation by Thomas More( Book )

2 editions published between 1995 and 2006 in English and held by 259 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"First published in Latin in 1516, Thomas More's Utopia is one of the most influential books in the Western philosophical and literary tradition and one of the supreme achievements of Renaissance humanism. This is the first edition of Utopia since 1965 (the Yale edition) to combine More's Latin text with an English translation, and also the first edition to provide a Latin text that is at once accurate and readable. The text is based on the early editions (with the Froben edition of March 1518 as copy-text), but spelling and punctuation have been regularised in accordance with modern practices. The translation is a revised version of the acclaimed Adams translation, which also appears in Cambridge Texts in the History of Political Thought. The edition, which incorporates the results of recent Utopian scholarship, includes an introduction, textual apparatus, a full commentary and a guide to the voluminous scholarly and critical literature on Utopia."--Jacket
Desiderii Erasmi Roterodami Opera omnia by Desiderius Erasmus( Book )

in Latin and held by 237 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Like the editions of Basel (Froben, 1538-1540) and Leiden (Van der Aa, 1703-1706) the Amsterdam edition of the complete works of Erasmus of Rotterdam is arranged according to the division into nine ordines (categories) which Erasmus himself laid down for the posthumous publication of his collected works. Each ordo corresponds to a specific literary or thematic category within Erasmus' oeuvre, in the following manner: I -- Writings on philological and educational questions II -- Proverbs and sayings (Adagia) III -- Correspondence IV -- Writings on moral questions V -- Writings relating to religious instruction VI -- The Latin translation of the New Testament, the Edition of the Greek text and annotations VII -- Paraphrases of the New Testament VIII -- Writings relating to Church Fathers (including several translations from Greek) IX -- Apologies. EACH VOLUME of the Amsterdam edition contains one or more works by Erasmus and is indicated by a Roman numeral, which refers to an ordo, followed by an Arabic numeral, by which the volumes within each ordo are numbered. For example ASD I-3 contains the Colloquia (discussions, colloquies). Erasmus's correspondence (ordo III) is available in the edition of P. S. Allen, H. M. Allen and H. W. Garrod (12 vols., Oxford 1906-1958), and has for this reason not been included in the Amsterdam edition. For more information visit also the journal Erasmus Studies, (formerly called Erasmus of Rotterdam Society Yearbook) ( at: ( also via ). Desiderius Erasmus (Rotterdam, ca. 1466-Basel, 1536) enjoyed in his own lifetime an international reputation as a scholar and literary figure. His works (which were all written in Latin) cover the full range of letters, ethics and religion (cf. the ordines in his Opera omnia). In his own day and in succeeding centuries his writings have been frequently reprinted, in Latin as well as in French, German, English, Italian, Dutch and other translations. Publisher's note

1 edition published in 2019 in English and held by 106 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume is intended to serve as a prolegomenon to Erasmus' New Testament scholarship as it is found in volumes 41-60 of the Collected works of Erasmus. The volume includes annotated translations of the major essays that appeared as prefaces to one or more of Erasmus' five editions of the New Testament. It includes as well numerous other texts that were given a role to play in some of the editions, primarily letters and responses to critics, which, though ancillary to the main enterprise, shed light on Erasmus' perception of his work."--

The correspondence of Erasmus by Desiderius Erasmus( )

3 editions published in 2020 in English and held by 99 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
