View Full Version : Erasmus Latin Translation

I have Erasmus' Annotations in Latin. As anyone who also has this knows, Erasmus' Latin is not simple. I have translated portions of his excursus on 1 John 5 for personal use, but his Latin is quite beyond me overall.

If anyone would like to attempt to translate his excursus on 1 John 5, let me know and I'll send you the PDF I made. Of course, once you translate it I would appreciate your sharing it with me.

I might add, it is not too dificult for me to make a literal translation of Eramus here, but strictly accurate translation is another matter entirely. Several other people skilled in Latin, some in teaching capacities, have likewise found Erasmus' Latin to be too tough. It is certainly Latin at one of its finest heights.

I would like a strictly accurate translation -- very, very accurate -- if anyone is interested.
