Chapter Summary

This index presents a list of book names written by Desiderius Erasmus. In 1575 there appeared in Florence under the patronage of the Catholic Church a new edition of Erasmus' adages, Adagia quaecumque ad hanc diem exierunt. This was the official expurgated edition commissioned by the Council of Trent and approved by Pope Gregory XIII to the exclusion of all other collections of adages. Marc Antoine Muret's polemical use of Plutarch's proverb against Erasmus culminates in an involuntary tribute to the Adages. After assailing Erasmus for his "fatuous interpretations" and defective theology, Muret writes a Latin commentary on Plutarch's adage clearly modeled on Erasmus' method of paroemiology.

Keywords: Catholic Church; Desiderius Erasmus; Marc Antoine Muret; paroemiology; Plutarch's proverb
