Erasmus’s Adages were among his most influential works in his own time, particularly later editions, which included both Greek and Latin.

Erasmus aims his narrative and commentary in Paraphrase on the Gospel of Matthew (volume 45) at a general educated audience (rather than professional theologians). Together, these volumes provide readable and accurate edition of Erasmus’s work and helpful special indexes
