Papa Adriano VI ed Erasmo: un dialogo tra scolastica e umanesimo alla luce della devotio moderna.
On Tuesday, 5 March, the sixth appointment of the permanent seminar in History of the Papacy will be held in room F007. On this occasion, Paul Van Geest, from the Universities of Tilburg and Rotterdam, will give a lecture entitled 'Pope Hadrian VI and Erasmus: a dialogue between scholasticism and humanism in the context of devotio moderna'. Van Geest will focus in particular on the influence that the common education Pope Adrian VI and Erasmus received in the Netherlands had on the intellectual physiognomy of both of them and on their way of thinking about a reform of the Church. Pope Adrian VI (1459-1523), originally from Utrecht, was educated, like Erasmus, in the Netherlands by the brothers of the Vita Commune, the semi-religious branch of the late medieval reform movement of the devotio moderna. In Leuven, Adrian became a scholastic theologian of great authority, while Erasmus became a globally influential humanist with an aversion to scholastic theology. Nevertheless, both remained in contact and both initiated reform processes in the Church. For this reason, Van Geest will discuss the differences and commonalities of the reform efforts pursued by Pope Adrian VI and Erasmus, their credibility and the agreement they tried to find between scholasticism and humanism.
