HISTORY of Christian Theology

(A.D. 28 Dec 1466–12 Jul 1536) Desiderius Erasmus Roterodamus is often referred to as the Prince of the Humanists. He was renowned as the greatest scholar of Northern Europe when the Protestant Reformation began. He advocated reform of the Catholic Church through education, piety and classic Catholic theology while Protestants insisted on more radical change. He and Martin Luther disagreed about the concept of free will. Erasmus wrote a book entitled Freedom of the Will in order to address what he felt was at the heart of the Protestant misunderstanding of theology. Luther countered with his book Bondage of the Will.
