De Immensa Dei Misericordia Concio

Editor: CSM Rademaker
This volume contains some of the theological writings of Erasmus, viz. a sermon on God's immense mercy, a comparison of a virgin and a martyr, a sermon on the young Jesus, a short treatise on the sorrow of Jesus in Gethsemane, the adhortation to read the Bible, which is one of the prefaces of Erasmus' New Testament project, and a commentary on two hymns by Prudentius on Christmas and Epiphany. The volume shows some aspects of Erasmus' theology and spirituality, embedded in the Roman Catholic Church and the liturgy of the mass.

Review Quotes

“Like the other volumes in the Amsterdam Opera Omnia of Erasmus, the edition under review is not only a fine piece of scholarship, but it is also beautifully produced.”
Marijke Crab, Leuven University. In: Seventeenth Century News, Vol. 72, Nos. 3-4 (Winter 2014), p. 288.

“The editors have provided us with detailed historical and textual introductions to the text, as we have become accustomed to with the series, setting each work both in the context of Erasmus’ life and in the broader milieu of early sixteenth century Christianity.”
Kirk A. Essary, University of Western Australia. In: Erasmus Studies, Vol. 35, No. 1 (2015) pp. 89-93.
