The Praise Of Folly

by Desiderius Erasmus, The Praise Of Folly Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Praise Of Folly books, Erasmus reached England after a stay in Italy early in the summer of 1510. Soon afterwards, in Thomas More's house at Bucklersbury, he rapidly wrote his famous satire, the Encomium Moriae, or "Praise of Folly," in which Folly celebrates her own praises as the great source of human pleasures. He had been meditating this piece on the long journey from Rome; it is a kaleidoscope of his experiences in Italy, and of earlier memories. As to the title, Moria, the Greek word for "folly," was a playful allusion, of course, to the name of his wise and witty host. This "Praise of Folly" is a satire, not only in the modern but in the original sense of that word,—a medley. All classes, all callings, are sportively viewed on the weak side. But in relation to the author's own life and times, the most important topics are the various abuses in the Church, the pedantries of the school-men, and the selfish wars of kings. If this eloquent Folly, as Erasmus presents her, most often wears the mocking smile of Lucian or Voltaire, there are moments also when she wields the terrible lash of Juvenal or of Swift. The popularity of the satire, throughout Europe, was boundless. The mask of jest which it wore was its safeguard; how undignified, how absurd it would have been for a Pope or a King to care what was said by Folly! And, just for that reason, the Encomium Moriae must be reckoned among the forces which prepared the Reformation.

Moriae Encomium

by Desiderius Erasmus, Moriae Encomium Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Moriae Encomium books, In writing Encomium Moriae, Erasmus wrote a satire. This satire takes the form of an oration by the goddess Folly, who is represented as declaiming from a pulpit upon the delights which await those who follow in her path. No class in the Renaissance world is spared in her harangue: kings, courtiers, authors, scholars, priests, and bishops -- all conditions of men feel the lash of her tongue. This was the Erasmian way of showing the world how it could "set itself free from its own ignorance."--Heritage Club Sandglass no. X:17.

In Praise Of Folly

by Desiderius Erasmus, In Praise Of Folly Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download In Praise Of Folly books, In Praise of Folly is an essay written in Latin in 1509 by Desiderius Erasmus of Rotterdam and first printed in June 1511. Inspired by previous works of the Italian humanist Faustino Perisauli [it] De Triumpho Stultitiae, it is a satirical attack on superstitions and other traditions of European society as well as on the Western Church.Erasmus revised and extended his work, which was originally written in the space of a week while sojourning with Sir Thomas More at More's house in Bucklersbury in the City of London. The title Moriae Encomium had a punning second meaning as In Praise of More. In Praise of Folly is considered one of the most notable works of the Renaissance and played an important role in the beginnings of the Protestant Reformation.
