On the importance of the church fathers

Vital to the recovery and transmission of the culture of the ancient world undertaken by the Renaissance humanists was their enthusiasm for the writings of the Church Fathers. Their principal contribution was to make available in the West, both in the original language and in Latin translations, the writings of the Greek Church Greek Church: see Orthodox Eastern Church. Fathers.' Humanists were interested in the Fathers for several reasons. The Fathers presented a powerful alternative to the scholastic method in the practice of theology. Their proximity to the scriptural fontes of Christianity and the strong grammatical element

The Fathers where formidable allies in devising a rhetorical theology whose object was not so much the definition of dogma as an exhortation to personal moral and spiritual reform. Perhaps most significantly, the Fathers, as products of the ancient world, functioned as impressive mediators between the two cultures that informed humanism: pagan antiquity and Christianity

Erasmus & St Jerome

In Basel (September 1514–March 1515) Erasmus made new friends among scholars in the Froben circle: Beatus Rhenanus, an editor of classical texts; Wolfgang Capito, Hebraist and cathedral preacher; and Ludwig Baer, a professor of theology at the university. Even while correcting proof he was still producing new material for his edition of the Epistulae and treatises that would make up the first four volumes of the Froben Opera Omnia of St. Jerome. Hieronymi Stridonensis Vita (Life of Jerome of Strido) is from one point of view a measure of Erasmus’s ambition, for as critics have noted there are striking resemblances between the Christian scholar Erasmus described (far different from the ascetic of hagiographic legends surrounding the figure of Jerome) and the role he claimed for himself in the contemporary world of letters. But the Vita also opened a fresh critical perspective on the holy man’s life and presented Erasmus’s view of what monasticism had been like prior to the virtual “slavery” of vows
