How did Erasmus affect Europe?
Desiderius Erasmus (1467?–1536)
From Rotterdam, Netherlands
Most famous northern humanist
"prince of the humanists"
Life long Catholic
Poetic & Christian Humanist
Was looked after brothers from the Modern Devotion.
Tutored "well-to-do youths"
Best way to reform people and society was the study of classics and the Bible.
philosophia Christi (Philosophy of Christ)
Feared the Reformation will become a threat to good learning and liberal arts.
Never joined a party of attitude in fear that he would lose his leadership reputation in scholarship.
Erasmus ~ Luther
Erasmus adored and respected Luther
Luther as a response would speak about his works with admiration.
Luther was an activist inspired by Erasmus who was just a philosopher.
Erasmus believed in free will in human actions.
Luther believed that there should be no sinning at all.
The impact that Erasmus had on Luther later resulted into a bigger impact to the Holy Roman Empire and Europe's religious view on life and the church.
At one point Erasmus was trying to take the middle ground in a conflict between Martin Luther and Pope Adrian VI.
