In this period of uncertainty and restlessness in Europe, there comes a new wave of interest for Erasmus of Rotterdam who was a philologist, theologian, and pedagogue (1466-1536). It is the Erasmus who loved the whole of humanity, the arts, books, philosophies, and religions. He disdained only one thing: secular and religious fanaticism since he considered it opposed to reason and destroyer of peace and coexistence. Erasmus’s communicative nature prevented him from seeing the insurmountable differences between Jesus and Socrates, between Christian doctrine and ancient wisdom, between religiosity and morality. He also welcomed the pagans in the name of tolerance, uniting them with the fathers of the Church. For him, Philosophy was a different way to find God.
