Ruthall, who had (as bishop of Durham and secretary to both Henry VII and VIII) some means for dispensing patronage and who had given Erasmus some assurance of goodwill (Epistles 243 and others). But that patronage which he sought in coming to England was still beyond his reach as he left, and with Ruthall he seems to have pressed too hard ( BR).

The influence of these humanist reformers in England can be seen in McConica's much-cited study of English Humanists and Reformation Politics, which relates the humanists and other scholars to their patrons. The influence of the English reformers in Europe has yet to be studied in full (indeed they are scarcely understood as a whole); but a quick sense can be caught by such hints as Erasmus' reference to Linacre, Grocyn, Latimer and Tunstall in his letter to Aldus of 1507, 'who are your friends as well as mine': 20 'You are aware that these men are too scholarly to be at sea in their judgment . . .' ( CWE 2:132/26-7; Allen I, 438/21-5). One needs a more precise reading of the role of English reformers like Colet and More in the thought of continental humanists like Budé, for the flow of ideas across the Channel was not simply one way.

Leaving England, there was for Erasmus the inevitable Channel crossing that he so dreaded: he was ill for several days on account of the food and seasickness. From Hamme, near Calais, he dispatched his translation of the Gallus (Cock) of Lucian to Christopher Urswick ( Allen I, 424). Arriving at Paris on 11 June, Erasmus began to put his second visit to England behind him, although he did not forget his friends and supporters; and in Paris he made ready for the trip to Italy that turned out to be a very long one. Among his English friends discussed in this chapter, only Thomas More, the layman, had not been to Italy; and though older now than the young student who had dreamed of studies in Italy, Erasmus was no less eager to see Rome and other centres of learning for himself. He also looked forward to meeting a number of Italian humanists.


Notes
1)
See especially the lines 85 ff. in Ep. 181: 'So I beseech you to help me as far as you can in my burning zeal for sacred studies by releasing me from the kind of literature which has now ceased to give me pleasure' ( CWE 2:88/85- 87; Allen I, 406/76-8). Immediately following that cri de coeur Erasmus rather cunningly planted with Colet the possibility that Mountjoy could be a means of further support, though Erasmus did not feel he could ask him directly ( CWE 2:88/87-91; Allen I, 406/78-82).
2)
As well as publishing Erasmus' Valla, Bade was also at this time
