Erasmus (1466-1536)

“No veneration of Mary is more beautiful than the imitation of her humility. No devotion to the saints is more acceptable to God than the imitation of their virtues.”

  • From Erasmus’ “Inner Faith Is Better Than Mere Ritual” within The Handbook of the Militant Christian, reprinted in The Western World: Age of the Protestant Reformation Primary Readings, edited by Mark Kishlansky Et al. Boston: Pearson, 2010.
