Erasmus and the Age of Reformation by Johan Huizinga (1872 - 1945). Translated by Frederik Jan Hopman (1877 - 1932)

This shorter book on Erasmus might be considered a companion to Huizinga's most famous work, The Waning of the Middle Ages. While in his magnum opus he presented a study of the forms of life and thought in France and the Netherlands in the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries, in this one the subject is the central intellectual figure of the next generation after the period which Huizinga called the waning, or rather the autumn, of the Middle Ages. It was first published in 1924, and so belongs to the same period of the author. Erasmus was, as it appears from many of his pages, a man for whom Huizinga had a very special sympathy. (Summary by Leni)
    1. How to claim a part, and "how it all works" here To find a section to record, simply look at point 5. below at the sections. All the ones without names beside them are "up for grabs." Click "Post reply" at the top left of the screen and tell us which section you would like to read (include the section number from the left-most column in the reader list, please). Read points 6. to 8. below for what to do before, during and after your recording.
    2. New to recording? Please read our Newbie Guide to Recording!
    3. Is there a deadline? We ask that you submit your recorded sections within 1-2 months of placing your claim. Please note that to be fair to the readers who have completed their sections in a timely way, if you haven't submitted your recording(s) after two months, your sections will automatically be re-opened for other readers to claim, unless you post in this thread to request an extension. Extensions will be granted at the discretion of the Book Coordinator. If you cannot do your section, for whatever reason, just let me know and it'll go back to the pool. There's no shame in this; we're all volunteers and things happen.Please do not sign up for more sections than you can complete within the two month deadline.

Add me to the Fans of Erasmus Club. :lol:

May I claim Chapter I. CHILDHOOD AND EARLY YOUTH, 1466-88, please?

Also, I notice that there is a Preface, but it is dated 1952 - and therefore off limits?

best,
Owlivia/Deborah

Hey, Deborah

Thanks for claiming. Yes, I decided not to add the Preface or the Translated Letters at the end, because they were later additions, by different authors/translators, and would make the book off-limits to non-US readers.
