BEHIND THE SCENE Did you know? The Erasmus House’s rare books collection includes a large number of censored books. Pages torn out, text blackened, names erased… most of these mutilations date back to the end of the 16th century and the 17th century, in other words after Erasmus’ death. Erasmus’ controversial ideas became suspect, and even inappropriate, in the context of the religious conflict that divided Europe. But was Erasmus himself a defender of freedom of speech? Join the guided tour and get a unique behind-the-scenes glimpse!
