About the book
The Praise of Folly / translated by John Wilson

Considered one of the most important works of literature in Western Civilization, Desiderius Erasmus’s essay, “Praise of Folly”, is a classic satirical work in the style of Lucian, the ancient Greek, in which the Goddess of Folly extols the virtues of frivolousness and indulgence of ones passions and then turns to a satirical examination of Christian piousness. In a humorously satirical way, “Praise of Folly” examines the abuses of power of the Roman Catholic Church at the time and is seen as one of the major catalysts for the Protestant Reformation.

About the Author
Erasmus of Rotterdam, 1466-1536

Dutch humanist and theologian.

Erasmus was a classical scholar who wrote in a “pure” Latin style and enjoyed the sobriquet “Prince of the Humanists.” He has been called “the crowning glory of the Christian humanists.” Using humanist techniques for working on texts, he prepared important new Latin and Greek editions of the New Testament. These raised questions that would be influential in the Protestant Reformation and Catholic Counter-Reformation. He also wrote The Praise of Folly, Handbook of a Christian Knight, On Civility in Children, Copia: Foundations of the Abundant Style, Julius Exclusus, and many other works.
