Early life[ edit ] Bust by Hildo Krop at Goudawhere Erasmus spent his youth Desiderius Erasmus is reported to have been born in Rotterdam on 28 October in the late s. According to an article by historian Renier Snooy —Erasmus was born in Gouda.
The exact year of his birth is controversial, but most agree it was in Information on his family and early life comes mainly from vague references in his writings.
His parents were not legally married. His father, Gerard, was a Catholic priest and curate in Gouda. She may have been Gerard's housekeeper.
This solidified his view of his origin as a stain, and cast a pall over his youth. For the first time ever Greek was taught at a lower level than a university in Europe, and this is where he began learning it. His education there ended when plague struck the city aboutand his mother, who had moved to provide a home for her sons, died from the infection.
Most likely in poverty  forced Erasmus into the consecrated life as a canon regular of St. Augustine at the canonry of Steinin South Holland. He took vows there in late and was ordained to the Catholic priesthood at about the age of 25, in While at Stein, Erasmus fell in love with a fellow canon, Servatius Rogerus,  and wrote a series of passionate letters in which he called Rogerus "half my soul".
He wrote, "I have wooed you both unhappily and relentlessly". Later, while tutoring in Parishe was suddenly dismissed by the guardian of Thomas Grey. Some have taken this as evidence of an illicit affair.
To allow him to accept that post, he was given a temporary dispensation from his religious vows on the grounds of poor health and love of Humanistic studies, though he remained a priest. Pope Leo X later made the dispensation permanent, a considerable privilege at the time.
Education and scholarship[ edit ] Bronze statue of Erasmus in Rotterdam. It was created by Hendrick de Keyser inreplacing a stone statue of The University was then the chief seat of Scholastic learning, but already coming under the influence of Renaissance humanism.
For instance, Erasmus became an intimate friend of an Italian humanist Publio Fausto Andrelinipoet and "professor of humanity" in Paris. The chief centres of Erasmus's activity were ParisLeuven in the Duchy of Brabantnow in BelgiumEnglandand Basel; yet he never belonged firmly in any one of these places.
In he was invited back to England by William Blount, 4th Baron Mountjoywho offered to accompany him on his trip back to England. Erasmus was "ever susceptible to the charms of attractive, well-connected, and rich young men". At the University of Cambridgehe was the Lady Margaret's Professor of Divinity and had the option of spending the rest of his life as an English professor.
He stayed at Queens' College, Cambridge from to Erasmus suffered from poor health and complained that Queens' could not supply him with enough decent wine wine was the Renaissance medicine for gallstones, from which Erasmus suffered.
Until the early 20th-century, Queens' College used to have a corkscrew that was purported to be "Erasmus' corkscrew" which was a third of a metre long, though today the college still has what it calls "Erasmus' chair". His legacy is marked for someone who complained bitterly about the lack of comforts and luxuries to which he was accustomed.
As Queens' was an unusually humanist-leaning institution in the 16th century, Queens' College Old Library still houses many first editions of Erasmus' publications, many of which were acquired during that period by bequest or purchase, including Erasmus' New Testament translation which is signed by friend and Polish religious reformer Jan Laski.
His friendship with Fisher is the reason he chose to stay at Queens' while lecturing in Greek at the University. Erasmus was particularly impressed by the Bible teaching of John Colet who pursued a style more akin to the church fathers than the Scholastics.
This prompted him, upon his return from England, to master the Greek language, which would enable him to study theology on a more profound level and to prepare a new edition of Jerome 's Bible translation.
On one occasion he wrote to Colet: How I dislike everything that keeps me back, or retards me". Throughout his life, he was offered positions of honor and profit in academia but declined them all, preferring the uncertain but sufficient rewards of independent literary activity.
From tohe was in Italy: According to his letters, he was associated with the Venetian natural philosopher, Giulio Camillo but, apart from this, he had a less active association with Italian scholars than might have been expected. His residence at Leuven, where he lectured at the Universityexposed Erasmus to much criticism from those ascetics, academics and clerics hostile to the principles of literary and religious reform and the loose norms of the Renaissance adherents to which he was devoting his life.
However, feeling that the lack of sympathy which prevailed at Leuven at that time was actually a form of mental persecution, he sought refuge in Basel, where under the shelter of Swiss hospitality he could express himself freely.
Admirers from all quarters of Europe visited him there and he was surrounded by devoted friends, notably developing a lasting association with the great publisher Johann Froben.Nov 10, · People will come up with anything to attrack tourists and make some money.
