The Man Who Stayed Catholic: Erasmus
What should Anabaptists (and Protestants) learn from this scholar who stayed with the Catholic church? Why did Erasmus refuse to leave his church? Stephen Russell tells about the life, writings, and convictions of Desiderius Erasmus.
“Looking at one man like this, Erasmus, who did not become a protestant and did not become an Anabaptist and yet greatly shaped both: I think it should help us realize we need to try to understand history, understand people where they were, and see how that can help us understand our own roots and understand where we are today.”
