This volume opens with four studies on the Fifth Lateran Council, to complement those in Professor Minnich's other volume. They focus on how the council functioned, including its relations with the Eastern churches, and how it was received, given that the poor implementation of its decrees led to its validity as a legitmate council being questioned. Erasmus was one of the most notable of those who rejected it, and the final part of this book deals with this, with his engagement in the debate over images, and with his personality. In the middle section, again making full use of new documentary material, the author provides studies of several important churchmen and controversies, among them the figure of Alexios Celadenus, disciple of Bessarion and the most important Greek at Lateran V, and the origins of Eck's "Enchiridion".
