What Do We Know About the Dutch Bible and Textual Scholar Erasmus of Rotterdam?

Erasmus said of God’s Word, “I WOULD have these words translated into all languages, so that not only Scots and Irish but Turks and Saracens too might read them . . . I long for the plowboy to sing them to himself as he follows his plow, the weaver to hum them to the tune of his shuttle, the traveler to beguile with them the dullness of his journey.” (Clayton 2006, 230)
