The desire to control everything can help a person become a good leader or an assiduous worker but can also make him unbearable stubborn, manipulative or paranoid.

Moving On after a Divorce: Sometimes divorce is a logical ending of a dysfunctional relationship.

It can be a one-sided decision and the will of both. Relationships with an age gap sufficiently differ from ordinary ones. For example, everyone understands a relationship between two people of nearly the same age, but if the age gap is 20 years or more, then most likely such a union is arranged. The world had laughed at his satire , but few had interfered with his activities. He believed that his work so far had commended itself to the best minds and also to the dominant powers in the religious world.

Erasmus did not build a large body of supporters with his letters. He chose to write in Greek and Latin, the languages of scholars. His critiques reached an elite but small audience. Noting Luther's criticism of the Catholic Church, Erasmus described him as "a mighty trumpet of gospel truth" while agreeing, "It is clear that many of the reforms for which Luther calls are urgently needed. Luther hoped for his cooperation in a work which seemed only the natural outcome of his own.

In their early correspondence, Luther expressed boundless admiration for all Erasmus had done in the cause of a sound and reasonable Christianity and urged him to join the Lutheran party. Erasmus declined to commit himself, arguing that to do so would endanger his position as a leader in the movement for pure scholarship which he regarded as his purpose in life.

Only as an independent scholar could he hope to influence the reform of religion. When Erasmus hesitated to support him, the straightforward Luther became angered that Erasmus was avoiding the responsibility due either to cowardice or a lack of purpose. However, any hesitancy on the part of Erasmus stemmed, not from lack of courage or conviction, but rather from a concern over the mounting disorder and violence of the reform movement.

To Philip Melanchthon in he wrote:. I know nothing of your church; at the very least it contains people who will, I fear, overturn the whole system and drive the princes into using force to restrain good men and bad alike.

The gospel, the word of God, faith, Christ, and Holy Spirit — these words are always on their lips; look at their lives and they speak quite another language. Here Erasmus complains of the doctrines and morals of the Reformers:. You declaim bitterly against the luxury of priests, the ambition of bishops, the tyranny of the Roman Pontiff, and the babbling of the sophists; against our prayers, fasts, and Masses; and you are not content to retrench the abuses that may be in these things, but must needs abolish them entirely Show me any one person who by that Gospel has been reclaimed from drunkenness to sobriety, from fury and passion to meekness, from avarice to liberality, from reviling to well-speaking, from wantonness to modesty.

I will show you a great many who have become worse through following it The solemn prayers of the Church are abolished, but now there are very many who never pray at all I have never entered their conventicles, but I have sometimes seen them returning from their sermons, the countenances of all of them displaying rage, and wonderful ferocity, as though they were animated by the evil spirit Who ever beheld in their meetings any one of them shedding tears, smiting his breast, or grieving for his sins?

Confession to the priest is abolished, but very few now confess to God They have fled from Judaism that they may become Epicureans. Apart from these perceived moral failings of the Reformers, Erasmus also dreaded any change in doctrine, citing the long history of the Church as a bulwark against innovation.

In book I of his Hyperaspistes he puts the matter bluntly to Luther:. We are dealing with this: Would a stable mind depart from the opinion handed down by so many men famous for holiness and miracles, depart from the decisions of the Church, and commit our souls to the faith of someone like you who has sprung up just now with a few followers, although the leading men of your flock do not agree either with you or among themselves — indeed though you do not even agree with yourself, since in this same Assertion [49] you say one thing in the beginning and something else later on, recanting what you said before.

Continuing his chastisement of Luther—and undoubtedly put off by the notion of there being "no pure interpretation of Scripture anywhere but in Wittenberg" [51] — Erasmus touches upon another important point of the controversy:. You stipulate that we should not ask for or accept anything but Holy Scripture, but you do it in such a way as to require that we permit you to be its sole interpreter, renouncing all others.

Thus the victory will be yours if we allow you to be not the steward but the lord of Holy Scripture. Though he sought to remain firmly neutral in doctrinal disputes, each side accused him of siding with the other, perhaps because of his neutrality.

It was not for lack of fidelity with either side but a desire for fidelity with them both:. I doubt that either side in the dispute can be suppressed without grave loss. In his catechism entitled Explanation of the Apostles' Creed , Erasmus took a stand against Luther's teaching by asserting the unwritten Sacred Tradition as just as valid a source of revelation as the Bible , by enumerating the Deuterocanonical books in the canon of the Bible and by acknowledging seven sacraments.

Erasmus, they said, had laid the egg, and Luther had hatched it. Erasmus wittily dismissed the charge, claiming that Luther had hatched a different bird entirely. Twice in the course of the great discussion, he allowed himself to enter the field of doctrinal controversy, a field foreign to both his nature and his previous practice. One of the topics he dealt with was free will, a crucial question. In his De libero arbitrio diatribe sive collatio , he lampoons the Lutheran view on free will.

He lays down both sides of the argument impartially. The "Diatribe" did not encourage any definite action; this was its merit to the Erasmians and its fault in the eyes of the Lutherans.

In response, Luther wrote his De servo arbitrio On the Bondage of the Will , which attacks the "Diatribe" and Erasmus himself, going so far as to claim that Erasmus was not a Christian. Erasmus responded with a lengthy, two-part Hyperaspistes — In this controversy Erasmus lets it be seen that he would like to claim more for free will than St. Augustine seem to allow according to Luther's interpretation. The content of Erasmus' works also engaged with later thought on the state of the question, including the perspectives of the via moderna school and of Lorenzo Valla, whose ideas he rejected.

As the popular response to Luther gathered momentum, the social disorders, which Erasmus dreaded and Luther disassociated himself from, began to appear, including the German Peasants' War , the Anabaptist disturbances in Germany and in the Low Countries, iconoclasm and the radicalization of peasants across Europe.

If these were the outcomes of reform, he was thankful that he had kept out of it. Yet he was ever more bitterly accused of having started the whole "tragedy" as the Catholics dubbed Protestantism. When the city of Basel definitely adopted the Reformation in , Erasmus gave up his residence there and settled in the imperial town of Freiburg im Breisgau.

Certain works of Erasmus laid a foundation for religious toleration and Ecumenism. For example, in De libero arbitrio , opposing certain views of Martin Luther, Erasmus noted that religious disputants should be temperate in their language, "because in this way the truth, which is often lost amidst too much wrangling may be more surely perceived. He wrote, "It is better to cure a sick man than to kill him.

A test of the Reformation was the doctrine of the sacraments , and the crux of this question was the observance of the Eucharist. In , Erasmus published a new edition of the orthodox treatise of Algerus against the heretic Berengar of Tours in the eleventh century.

He added a dedication, affirming his belief in the reality of the Body of Christ after consecration in the Eucharist, commonly referred to as transubstantiation. When his strength began to fail, he decided to accept an invitation by Queen Mary of Hungary, Regent of the Netherlands , to move from Freiburg to Brabant. However, during preparations for the move in , he suddenly died from an attack of dysentery during a visit to Basel. According to Jan van Herwaarden, this is consistent with his view that outward signs were not important; what mattered is the believer's direct relationship with God, which he noted "as the [Catholic] church believes".

However, Herwaarden observes that "he did not dismiss the rites and sacraments out of hand but asserted a dying person could achieve a state of salvation without the priestly rites, provided their faith and spirit were attuned to God. Erasmus wrote both on ecclesiastic subjects and those of general human interest.

By the s, the writings of Erasmus accounted for 10 to 20 percent of all book sales in Europe. Erasmus is also generally credited with originating the phrase " Pandora's box ", arising through an error in his translation of Hesiod 's Pandora in which he confused pithos storage jar with pyxis box. His more serious writings begin early with the Enchiridion militis Christiani , the "Handbook of the Christian Soldier" translated into English a few years later by the young William Tyndale. A more literal translation of enchiridion - 'dagger' - has been likened to "the spiritual equivalent of the modern Swiss Army knife.

The chief evil of the day, he says, is formalism - going through the motions of tradition without understanding their basis in the teachings of Christ. Forms can teach the soul how to worship God, or they may hide or quench the spirit. In his examination of the dangers of formalism, Erasmus discusses monasticism, saint worship, war, the spirit of class and the foibles of "society.

The Enchiridion is more like a sermon than a satire. With it Erasmus challenged common assumptions, painting the clergy as educators who should share the treasury of their knowledge with the laity. He emphasized personal spiritual disciplines, and called for a reformation which he characterized as a collective return to the Fathers and Scripture.

Most importantly, he extolled the reading of scripture as vital because of its power to transform and motivate toward love. Much like the Brethren of the Common Life, he wrote that the New Testament is the law of Christ people are called to obey and that Christ is the example they are called to imitate.

According to Ernest Barker , "Besides his work on the New Testament, Erasmus laboured also, and even more arduously, on the early Fathers. Erasmus also wrote of the legendary Frisian freedom fighter and rebel Pier Gerlofs Donia Greate Pier , though more often in criticism than in praise of his exploits. Erasmus saw him as a dim, brutal man who preferred physical strength to wisdom. One of Erasmus's best-known works, inspired by De triumpho stultitiae written by Italian humanist Faustino Perisauli , is The Praise of Folly , published under the double title Moriae encomium Greek, Latinised and Laus stultitiae Latin.

Erasmus applies the general principles of honor and sincerity to the special functions of the Prince, whom he represents throughout as the servant of the people. Machiavelli stated that, to maintain control by political force, it is safer for a prince to be feared than loved.

Erasmus preferred for the prince to be loved, and strongly suggested a well-rounded education in order to govern justly and benevolently and avoid becoming a source of oppression.

As a result of his reformatory activities, Erasmus found himself at odds with both the great parties. His last years were embittered by controversies with men toward whom he was sympathetic. Notable among these was Ulrich von Hutten , a brilliant but erratic genius, who had thrown himself into the Lutheran cause and declared that Erasmus, if he had a spark of honesty, would do the same. In his reply in , Spongia adversus aspergines Hutteni , Erasmus displays his skill in semantics.

He accuses Hutten of having misinterpreted his utterances about reform and reiterates his determination never to break with the Church. The Ciceronianus came out in , attacking the style of Latin that was based exclusively and fanatically on Cicero's writings.

Etienne Dolet wrote a riposte titled Erasmianus in Erasmus's last major work, published the year of his death, is the Ecclesiastes or "Gospel Preacher" Basel, , a massive manual for preachers of around a thousand pages. Though somewhat unwieldy because Erasmus was unable to edit it properly in his old age, it is in some ways the culmination of all of Erasmus' literary and theological learning, offering prospective preachers advice on nearly every conceivable aspect of their vocation with extraordinarily abundant reference to classical and biblical sources.

Johann Froben published it first within a revised edition of the Adagia in , then as a stand-alone work in Sileni is the plural Latin form of Silenus , a creature often related to the Roman wine god Bacchus and represented in pictorial art as inebriated, merry revellers, variously mounted on donkeys, singing, dancing, playing flutes etc.

Alcibiades was a Greek politician in the 5th century BCE and a general in the Peloponnesian War ; he figures here more as a character written into some of Plato's dialogues—a young, debauched playboy whom Socrates tries to convince to seek truth instead of pleasure, wisdom instead of pomp and splendor. The term Sileni —especially when juxtaposed with the character of Alcibiades—can therefore be understood as an evocation of the notion that something on the inside is more expressive of a person's character than what one sees on the outside.

For instance, something or someone ugly on the outside can be beautiful on the inside, which is one of the main points of Plato's dialogues featuring Alcibiades and the Symposion , in which Alcibiades also appears. Erasmus lists several Sileni and then questions whether Christ is the most noticeable Silenus of them all. The Apostles were Sileni since they were ridiculed by others.

He believes that the things which are the least ostentatious can be the most significant, and that the Church constitutes all Christian people —that despite contemporary references to clergy as the whole of the Church, they are merely its servants.

This makes for a better story. The only way to know is to go to Switzerland and visit the archives in Bern. Either way, you cannot take the translation of the book literally. In , persecution of the Anabaptists in Switzerland was at it worst. They arrived destitute, having walked, with bundles on their backs, and their children in their arms. In January , Swiss came to the west of the Rhine, and came to the east of the Rhine.

He was age 52 and his wife Anna Muller was 50 years. They had 8 children, 6 with them, with the oldest 20 years. The following are the children of Christian and Anna that came to Germany:.

Eventually, our Hans married a lady named Anna Liesbeth, who may also have been a refugee, they had at least 6 children somewhere near Biedershausen, Germany. If you are a Rubeli researcher reading this, there is misinformation on this website you may be familiar with: Hans and Anna Liesbeth were already there in Germany. They are not Catholic residents.
