H. Holbein pinxit [c.1650]
Engraving, platemark 150 x 90mm (6 x 3½"). Trimmed from large sheet; glued to backing sheet.
Desiderius Erasmus (1466-1536), Dutch Renaissance humanist and a Catholic theologian. Erasmus prepared important new Latin and Greek editions of the New Testament, and 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. Erasmus lived through the Reformation period and he consistently criticized some contemporary popular Christian beliefs. In relation to clerical abuses in the Church, Erasmus remained committed to reforming the Church from within. He also held to Catholic doctrines such as that of free will, which some Protestant Reformers rejected in favour of the doctrine of predestination. His middle road disappointed and even angered many Protestants, such as Martin Luther, as well as conservative Catholics. This is one of numerous engravings reproducing the likeness of Erasmus by Hans Holbein the younger.
