Write short notes
Erasmus was a latin secular and a catholic reformer. Like Martin Luther he criticized the excesses of Catholicism but unlike him, he was not grateful to print.
He expressed a deep anxiety about printing. For him books were stupid, ignorant slanderous, scandalous irreligious and seditious.
He thought that books were not good for sanctity of scholastic knowledge. He was of the opinion that printed books would glut the market with contents which will do more harm than good to society. Because of this the value of good content would be lost in the din.
