The second volume was published in 1549

Erasmus yearned to make the Bible an effective instrument in the reform of society, church, and the life of individuals in the turbulent world the sixteenth century. He therefore composed paraphrases in which the words of Holy Scripture provided the core of a text vastly expanded to embrace the reforming 'philosophy of Christ.' The Paraphrases were successful beyond expectation and were quickly translated from Latin into French, German, English, and other languages. This volume is the third Paraphrase to be published in the New Testament Scholarship series in the CWE.

In it Erasmus explores questions that have always been central to Christian self-understanding. Why is the cross folly to the wise of this world? In the Paraphrase on John, Erasmus hints broadly that the cause of human blindness lies in the arrogance of intellectual pretensions, the love of vain-glory, the lust for possessions, the fear of losing the supports that secure a comfortable way of life.

Perhaps nothing will please the reader more the portraits of the chief characters in John's Gospels. We enjoy the simplicity of the lowly woman at the well, we understand the complexity of the distinguished Nicodemus. Above all, we are captured by the portrait of Christ himself. Upon the stage Erasmus has here designed, Christ appears first in the humility of a lowly artisan from a despised country; only to the discerning does his glory flash forth from his mortality, a mortality vividly etched in the scene on the cross. But in the last pages of the Paraphrase on John, Erasmus sets before us in sharp dramatic contrast the resurrected Christ glorious with a radiant holiness.

Like Augustine in the City of God, Erasmus attempts to define the relationship between the two worlds in which the Christian lives - the heavenly and the spiritual, and the earthly and physical.

First, let me explain why I only gave this great classic of the Renaissance only four stars. The first, is the cost. I ordered one volume a month, until I began worrying that someone else would snatch them out from under me. My credit card is still recovering from the shock. The second is that across the six volumes, there is no index which puts things in either alphabetical or topical order (as with a Thesaurus. It would be of little value to put them all in Latin alphabetical order, as a large number of the 4150 adages are from the Greek, not Latin.

Second, let me clarify what Erasmus means by "Adages". In Samuel Johnson's dictionary, an adage is "Lat.]A maxim handed down from antiquity; a proverb. This is not what Erasmus means. A proverb assumes a complete sentence. Most of Erasmus' adages are not sentences, but clauses, or even just phrases from works of literature written in classic Greek or Latin. For example, Adage 18 is a familiar expression "On the razor's edge", which forecasts the title of Somerset Maughm's novel, is first from Homer's The Iliad, meaning, as we do now, to be finely balanced between success or failure. The expression reappears in Sophocles' Antigone, in the Epigrams, and in the Dioscuri (both collections of Greek sayings.) The interesting thing is that some sources (Wikipedia) say Maugham took the expression from the Katha Upanishand "Arise, awake, and learn by approaching the exalted ones, for that path is sharp as a razor's edge, impassable, and hard to go by, say the wise." Which is a slightly different meaning.

Third, I will cite the primary reason for treasuring this work. It may be the ultimate medicine for writer's block. There are 4151 different phrases, spread out over six volumes, every one has about a half page of explanation. But a large minority have essays by Erasmus which are several pages long. I can just imagine a blog writer, setting themselves the task of writing 1000 words each week, to be at a loss for something abut which they can write. If I were in that position, I would take one of these volumes, open it at random and page through it until I found an adage with a page or more of commentary, and use that as the subject for my blog.

Fourth, as delightful as Erasmus' comments are, their references are sometimes vague. The annotator has remedied this situation by providing footnotes, sometimes even suggesting a primary source which Erasmus does not mention, such as the expression 23 "Back to the third line". The editor attributes it to a proverb in Livy, based on a military manuver.

Everyone is familiar with the proverb "Beware of Greeks bearing gifts." It turns out this sentiment is far deeper than just the incident from Homer with the Trojan horse. Erasmus' version is 35 "Gifts of enemies are no gifts." It was an ancient Greek custum to distrust anything given to us by people with suspicious intentions. There are even events in The Iliad about bad arising out of gifts exchanged between Ajax and Hector, even before the famous incident with the horse.

The books are beautifully and durably bound, and the copies I received, although plainly second hand, are in tip top shape, just a few tiny tears in the dust jacket (whether or not the volume's photograph had a dust jacket or not.

"Collected Works of Erasmus: 71" - This is my fifth purchase and first disappointment in wonderful series of translations of Erasmus from the University of Toronto. I am so grateful for the translation and many but not all of the introductory materials included in each volume.

"Who?" you ask, is Desiderius Erasmus? As a lifelong Protestant, I too was unfamiliar with the genius who preceded the Protestant Reformation. Erasmus gets little attention in Protestantism despite our great debt to him. Erasmus was the rockstar of European academia in the early 1500's. Most of the intelligentsia loved him, and all knew his name. He heavily yet courteously criticized the Roman religious system, publishing his own version of the Bible in Greek and daring to correct the Latin Vulgate, all the while winning the adoration of Pope Leo X who would have felt threatened by almost anyone else who had done the same things. The Reformers including Luther loved him, at least until he finally disagreed publicly and respectfully with Luther's claim that humans have no free will.

Erasmus vigilantly held his independence, resisting calls to becoming a bishop of joining a university faculty because either avenue would have limited his freedom to study, publish, and write without hindrance. His translated works are mostly full of wit and wisdom. I thoroughly enjoyed volume 3 (including his preface to the annotations of the 1st edition of the Greek New Testament), volume 10 (including his comparison of writing to childbearing), volume 76 (comprised entirely by his disagreements with Martin Luther), and volume 78 which includes his revelatory "Letter against the Pseudo-Evangelicals."

While I give the very highest recommendation to volumes 3, 10, 76, & 78; I found little to enjoy in volume 71. At the time of this review, there is only one other which appears to be mistakenly applied to this volume while discussing instead the "Adages" which are found in volumes 30-36. This particular volume (71) was unusually short (130 pages compared to 400+ in other volumes) while ironically feeling much longer than the others volumes because of how tedious, less animated topics were the topics in this one. Here, Erasmus and his opponents talk at great length about whether we should learn other languages and whether or not marriage is good.

Bleh. Boring.
