My Followers
by Erasmus

In this section Folly drops her mask. She has claimed for herself the theologians who defend rites and superstition, but she now enlists among her devotees those who worship her in their hearts and express her in their habits. The irony is not totally consistent. After the theologians, Folly claims for her own those whose religion is inferior and evangelical.

Note to My Followers which is Part 3 of Folly Speaks from "The Praise Of Folly"
