79 books of Desiderius Erasmus

Besides the celebrated Praise of Folly, Robert M. Adams has included the political "Complaint of Peace,­" the brutal antipapal satire "Julius Excluded from Heaven,­" two versions of Erasmus’s important preface to the Latin translation of the New Testament, and a selection both serious and comic of his Colloquies and his letters.  Adams has made these selections to emphasize the humane, rather than the doctrinaire, side of the first and arguably greatest humanist.

Desiderius Erasmus (1466-­1536) was a Reformation-­era scholar whose writings in the Latin language are voluminous. In his The Complaint of Peace, Erasmus personifies peace who comes to earth to deliever her sobering verdict on the human race. In so doing, she chastises both secular and ecclesiastical rulers for betraying the heart of the gospel message and promoting unjust wars instead of peace.
