Overview

Although polemics dominated Erasmus' literary output in the last two decades of his life, the controversies remain among the most neglected pieces in the corpus of his writings. On a different level, they add a dimension often missing in portraits of Erasmus. Usually depicted as the urbane and witty humanist who enjoyed great popularity and prestige, he appears in the works of his critics as a contentious and duplicitous ""theologizer"" who inspired disdain and loathing.
