“When I have a little money, I buy books; and if I have any left, I buy food and clothes.”

― Erasmus

 

Erasmus’s famous ‘Colloquies’ is a collection of humanistic dialogues on a wide variety of subjects, most of which explore man’s reactions to other men through conversation. Erasmus, and his pupils, wrote on war, travel, religion, sleep, beggars, funerals, literature, and other topics. According to one expert, ‘Colloquies’

“held up contemporary religious practices for examination in a more serious but still pervasively ironic tone.” (Coffin)

This work exposed some of Erasmus’s humor through the invention of word games and rhetoric exercises used for education. He wanted culture to serve as a model for those living during the Renaissance.

 

This 1650 first edition was published by the famed Elzevier house in Amsterdam.
