Abstract

Rudolph Agricola: Six Lives and Erasmus's Testimonies The Frisian humanist Rudolph Agricola (1443-1485) is rightly famous for single-handedly bringing the Italian Renaissance to the North. Owing to his fascinating personality and many talents, he attracted the love and admiration of his contemporaries and the following generations. As a result, six biographies on Agricola have been preserved. The authors of these lives drew their materials from different sources and wrote their texts independently from each other. Differing vastly in rhetorical aims and methods, they provide us with a vivid image of cultural and intellectual life in the 15th century. Erasmus praised Agricola's work throughout his writings. No less than fifty testimonies from Erasmus and his correspondents are presented here. This edition of sources supplements the volume of Agricola's letters (BLN, 2002) and is preceded by an expert survey of all biographical information now at our disposal. Thus it fills a gap in our knowledge of a great man of letters, while correcting a number of persistent misconceptions (concerning the year of Agricola's birth, for instance).

Abstract

ASD VI,7 comprises Erasmus's Annotations on Paul's Epistle to the Romans. In this very interesting letter many subjects with respect to justification by faith, the relation between Jews and Christians and so on are treated. Erasmus comments on them, defending his translation of the New Testament, but also using the remarks by several theologians and Fathers of the Church on these topics in order to defend his own theological convictions. Hovingh comments on this commentary by Erasmus, identifying his sources and stilistic and grammatical peculiarities.
