About the Authors
  • This is a new student edition of Erasmus' crucial treatise on political theory and also contains a new, excerpted translation from his Panegyric. The Education of a Christian Prince is one of the most important "advice-to-princes" texts published in the Renaissance and was dedicated to Charles V. It is a strongly pacifist work in which Erasmus sought to ensure that the prince governed justly and benevolently. This edition also includes an original introduction, a chronology of the life and work of Erasmus, and a comprehensive guide to further reading.

    • The Education of a Christian Prince is one of the most important and influential 'advice-to-princes' texts of the Renaissance
    • A new translation of previously inaccessible material
    • Contains an excerpted translation of Panegyric, (which was also translated by Lisa Jardine) so students will be able to compare two works which Erasmus regarded as closely related
