Methodological Remarks

  • Nathan Ron


Erasmus’ mind on the “other” and the Jew in particular was very much integrated in current attitudes. Grading and degrading of peoples were imbedded in Erasmus’ mind. As far as Jews, or even new Christians, were concerned, it was difficult to separate religion from ethnicity. Thus, a racial attitude, or proto-racial, was easily developed. Various expressions of Erasmus, of the aforesaid combination—a religious/theological core and racial manifestations or implications—are of this sort.
