This is a series of papers of mine, documenting the dispute between Martin Luther and Erasmus: the greatest scholar in Europe during Luther’s time. It documents their correspondence, Luther’s vitriolic personal attacks against Erasmus, and Erasmus’ magnificent responses in his Hyperaspistes (1526). For those who think that Luther easily triumphed over every Catholic opponent, this will certainly be enlightening and educational reading. The material is drawn from blog posts of mine from February 2009.
