Adams has includedthe political "Complaint of Peace," the brutal antipapal satire "JuliusExcluded from Heaven," two versions of Erasmus#xC3;#xA2;#xC2;#x80;#xC2;#x99;s important preface tothe Latin translation of the New Testament, and a selection bothserious and comic of his Colloquies and his letters.#xA0; Adams has madethese selections to emphasize the humane, rather than the doctrinaire,side of the first and arguably greatest humanist.
