New Volume in the Works of Erasmus: VII-3A Ordinis septimi tomus tertius pars A

15 September 2022

Paraphrasis in Euangelium secundum Ioannem, edited by Jan Bloemendal.

In his ‘Project of the New Testament’ Erasmus also wrote a running commentary on all New Testament books, except Revelation, in the form of a paraphrase. In this volume, the Paraphrase on John – Latin text with critical apparatus, and English introduction and commentary, is edited. In the paraphrase, Erasmus turns out to be a mature interpreter of the Bible, who advocated a new Christianity, which he called ‘the philosophy of Christ’, and implicitly criticized the clergy of his own age.
