Description

The irenical tract De officio pii viri (1561) by Georgius Cassander (1513-1566), its reception and its reprints highlight 16th-century erasmian humanist efforts for Church reunification in the Age of Reformation. Two contemporary translations, one in German by Georg von Cell and one in French by Jean Hotman, show us how De officio pii viri was adapted to the ongoing struggle for church peace in different parts of Europe.
