Summary

A Renaissance theologist who brought new light to Dutch changes during the Protestant wars against Spain. 

He stood for humanism, children’s rights, and theological ideologies that he wasn’t afraid to spread across the Dutch nation, which was going through some dramatic transformations at that time. His political and theological ideas should not be ignored, and as a Christian philosopher, he has had a huge impact on the distant culture of the Netherlands, Protestantism, and more. 

In this brief introduction to his life and teachings, you will hear about:  

  • His views on the Protestant and Catholic church.  
  • His psychological background, ideas, and perspectives on education.  
  • Why Erasmus was a classical humanist and why he translated the Bible himself.  
  • His conflict with Maarten Luther.  
  • And much more.  

Study this influential theologist and you might actually learn something new you have never considered before.

Erasmus was a genius

I've read some of the works of Erasmus, and he is a smart guy. I learned a lot from him and his vision.
