Les éditions anciennes de L'Éloge de la Folie

Maison d'Érasme, 21 vi-2 x 2011

L’Éloge de la Folie a été publiée à Paris chez Gilles de Gourmont et le libraire Jean Petit en août 1511. Cet ouvrage a été immédiatement un énorme succès de librairie et fut réédité près de 60 fois au XVIe siècle. Érasme fut contraint aussi de défendre son texte contre les théologiens. L’exposition montre quels sont les enjeux de ce texte au moyen des éditions anciennes.
