    Princeton University Press 2015; US$ 16.95

    Desiderius Erasmus (1466?1536) was a Dutch humanist, scholar, and social critic, and one of the most important figures of the Renaissance. The Praise of Folly is perhaps his best-known work. Originally written to amuse his friend Sir Thomas More, this satiric celebration of pleasure, youth, and intoxication irreverently pokes fun at the pieties... more...

  • Erasmus, Man of Lettersby Lisa Jardine; Lisa Jardine

    Princeton University Press 2015; US$ 18.95

    The name Erasmus of Rotterdam conjures up a golden age of scholarly integrity and the disinterested pursuit of knowledge, when learning could command public admiration without the need for authorial self-promotion. Lisa Jardine, however, shows that Erasmus self-consciously created his own reputation as the central figure of the European intellectual... more...

The introduction, translation and commentary make the works... more...

  • Bucolica - Fünf Eklogenby Simon Lemnius; Lothar Mundt; Lothar Mundt

    De Gruyter 1996; US$ 154.00

    One of the most neglected areas of German humanism is the tradition of pastoral poetry in New Latin modeled on Virgil`s eclogues. Among the most prominent New Latin bucolic poets is Simon Lemnius (1511-1550), best known otherwise for his earlier poetic broadsides against Luther. The present edition is a major step towards a better understanding... more...

  • Satiren des Mittelaltersby Udo Kindermann

    WBG - Wissenschaftliche Buchgesellschaft 2014; US$ 114.48

    Seit dem 11. Jahrhundert kennen wir mittelalterliche Satiren in Versform. Die meist anonym überlieferten Gedichte knüpfen an altrömische Dichter wie Horaz oder Juvenal an, die damals nicht zufällig als vorzügliche Schulautoren galten, und fanden rasch große Verbreitung. Die Texte waren für ein Publikum geschrieben, das nicht unbedingt dem Klerus im... more...
