One of the most important figures of the 16th century, Desiderius Erasmus was a leading reformist and Renaissance humanist. Through his works and letters, Erasmus championed that true religion was a matter of inward devotion rather than outward symbols of ceremony and ritual, and sought to reform aspects of the Church from within. His works showed an astonishing intelligence, razor-sharp wit, and an authentic love for God and humanity. Soon after publication, his works were translated and read all over Europe.

This biography of Erasmus' life and work also contains letters found after the publication of Francis Morgan Nichols' three-volume Epistles of Erasmus, an in-depth look at the controversy between Erasmus and Luther, two appendixes (one that includes the text of Erasmus' last will), a detailed index, and thirteen illustrations.
