This additional volume offers a revised edition of Lingua, Erasmus’ work on language, its possibilities and the dangers in its use, ending in a praise of the Word of God. Since it deals with the moral implications of language, Erasmus placed it in Ordo IV that comprises works on moral issues. The Latin text is presented in a critical edition, accompanied by introductions and a commentary in French, elucidating difficult passages, tracing Erasmus’ sources and offering all linguistic, historical, theological and philological information needed to understand the text.

The ‘Supplements to Vigiliae Christianae’ series was launched in 1987 with the publication of Tertullianus, De Idololatria, a critical text with translation and commentary by J.H. Waszink and J.C.M. van Winden (partly based on a manuscript left behind by P.G. van der Nat). It seems appropriate, therefore, that the 100th volume to appear in the ‘Supplements to Vigiliae Christianae’ series should be an updated reprint of J.H. Waszink’s monumental and authoritative edition of Tertullian’s De Anima. This volume contains the complete contents of the first edition, to which we have added a brief overview of J.H. Waszink’s scholarly career, an English translation of the greater part of the introduction to his German translation of De Anima of 1980 and a list of corrections authorized by him.
