Desiderius Erasmus

Desiderius Erasmus

Dutch scholar and humanist, writer, scholar, theologian, prominent representatives of the Northern Renaissance.
Amongst the learned the lawyers claim first place, the most self-satisfied class of people, as they roll their rock of Sisyphus and string together six hundred laws in the same breath, no matter whether relevant or not, piling up opinion on opinion and gloss on gloss to make their profession seem the most difficult of all. Anything which causes trouble has special merit in their eyes. Desiderius Erasmus quotes
