sum up
by Erasmus

In this final section of the Praise of Folly Erasmus takes advantage of the ironic form to put his ideal with total seriousness into the sort of paradoxes in which the evangelists recount the moral teaching of Christ. However, what Folly says here does not exclude the need for learning, required to justify this reading of the Christian message, which Erasmus thought should itself be instantly accessible to everyone.

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