The seventh volume of the Adagia (Proverbs) of the Amsterdam edition of the Latin texts of Erasmus gives an introduction in French and a critical edition of the Latin text of the first half of the fourth thousand Adages. The text is accompanied by notes in French that trace Erasmus’ sources and give linguistic, historical, philological and, where appropriate, theological background information which elucidates the text and Erasmus’ way of working.

This Lexique de la prose latine de la Renaissance is the first dictionary of Renaissance Latin and continues on from the Dictionnaire latin-français of F. Gaffiot. However, it comprises 8500 words, more than 7000 of which are not mentioned by Gaffiot, while others are employed with different meanings.
It is based upon a reading of a very large number of texts by 150 authors from Western and Central Europe, including Budé, Calvin, Erasmus, Ficino, Lipsius, Luther, Melanchthon, More, Petrarch, Pica della Mirandola, Politian, Valla, Vives, and Zwingli. The compiler has paid particular attention to variety in the source texts, which cover literature, correspondence, history, law, philosophy, theology, and science.
This work has been long awaited by scholars and students and will become a standard tool not only for latinists and neo-latinists, but also for all those historians, philosophers, theologians, historians of law, and intellectual historians working in the fields of Humanism, the Renaissance, the Reformation and Counter-Reformation.

Erasmus wrote his Colloquies as educational material for training boys in Latin conversation. This volume of the Amsterdam edition of the Latin texts of Erasmus offers a critical edition of the Latin texts of these influential, creative writings, which resemble short Latin plays. The editors present a critical edition of the Latin text, with an introduction and commentary in French, and provide linguistic, philological, historical, philosophical and theological background to the text.
