Stultitiae Laus, Used

Do not write down your wisdom! Erasmus' commentary on Ecclesiasticus' Jesus Sirach statement "Better is the man who hides his foolishness than the man who hides his wisdom". What should one hide more carefully: valuable objects or worthless casual things? Why don't you say something? Even though you pretend stupidity, the Greek proverb answers in your place: "One puts the water jar at the door"; and one had better not disrespectfully wave this aside: it is a quotation of Aristotle, the god of our professors. Or is someone among you so foolish as to leave gold and jewels on the street? Truly not, isn't it?

Erasmus revised and extended his work, which was originally written in the space of a week while sojourning with Sir Thomas More at More's house in Bucklersbury in the City of London. In Praise of Folly is considered one of the most notable works of the Renaissance and played an important role in the beginnings of the Protestant Reformation. In Praise of Folly starts off with a satirical learned encomium , in which Folly praises herself, after the manner of the Greek satirist Lucian , whose work Erasmus and Sir Thomas More had recently translated into Latin, a piece of virtuoso foolery; it then takes a darker tone in a series of orations, as Folly praises self-deception and madness and moves to a satirical examination of pious but superstitious abuses of Catholic doctrine and corrupt practices in parts of the Roman Catholic Church —to which Erasmus was ever faithful—and the folly of pedants. Erasmus had recently returned disappointed from Rome, where he had turned down offers of advancement in the curia , and Folly increasingly takes on Erasmus' own chastising voice.
