Back to The Froben Edition, Edited by Desiderius Erasmus


The famous humanist, Desiderius Erasmus (1469-1536), was the first to prepare an edition of the Complete Works based on the work of Amerbach but including the three works omitted in Amerbach's 1506 version. Besides correcting errors in the previous edition, Erasmus added his own observations. This ten volume edition of Augustine's works was printed by the firm of Johann Froben and appeared in Basel from 1528 to 1529. It was reprinted several times by Froben's firm and by other publishers.
