The second issue of Ordo IV of the Amsterdam edition of the Latin texts of Erasmus comprises the Querela Pacis and Erasmus’ Latin translations of some of Plutarch’s Moralia. The Complaint of Peace deals with peace and war, and the tension between love of one’s country and St. Paul’s admonishment to unity in Christianity. The volume offers a critical edition of the Latin texts as well as introductions and commentaries in German, including an identification of sources quoted, and any linguistic, philological, theological or historical background information necessary to understand the Latin text.
