Collected Works of Erasmus

Controversies

Edited by: Charles Fantazzi

Despite having enemies in the powerful Spanish religious orders, and being warned of the controversies that would arise, Erasmus published the fourth edition of his New Testament in 1527, resulting in a major crisis for Erasmianism in Spain. The three texts in the present volume were written in response to his critics.
