College, 'notable ornaments to this whole realm'. Less well known was John Watson of Peterhouse, who lectured on St Matthew in 1516 using Erasmus' notes as a guide; and the influence of Erasmus upon Robert Barnes, then prior of the Augustinians in Cambridge, and upon William Tyndale, who in the early 1520s translated Erasmus' Enchiridion into English, is hardly to be measured.

We shall speak more fully in chapter 45 of the lasting influence of Erasmus in England and elsewhere. Here it suffices to declare that Cambridge was changed by Erasmus' lecturing, and still more we must think by his presence, in Cambridge during those seminal years from 1511 to 1514: Fisher knew whereof he spoke when he wrote that 'I can see how indispensable you are to our university' ( Epistle 242, CWE 2:197/13-14). Si monumentum requiris, circumspice might well be pronounced over the heads, or graves, of all great teachers. Certainly with Erasmus it is not a graven monument; rather one that is to be found in the minds and spirits of those who heard and read him, and in their works and teaching, which carried the spirit of Erasmus to a still younger generation.


Notes
1)
A. G. H. Bachrach, "'In Conclusion'", in Sir Thomas Browne M.D. and the Anatomy of Man ( Leiden, 1982) 26, (quoting R. L. Colie, "'Sir Thomas Browne's 'Entertainment' in XVIIth Century Holland'", Neophilologus xxxvi ( 1952)162-71.

The bestowing of his baccalaureate in theology is unrecorded, but the presumption is that it took place in Paris.
3)
See R. J. Schoeck in BR for further details of Wentford's life and career, and of his relations with Erasmus.
4)
Although the idea of 20 presentation copies was dropped in Erasmus' final will of 1536 (appendix D), in fact there is a copy of the 1540 Opera Omnia in the library of Queens' with a note inside (in a later hand) that it was 'left in his will by Erasmus to Queens' College'; but there is no way to tell how the Opera reached Queens'. Porter suggests that it might have been one of the books bequeathed by Thomas Smith, author of De republica Anglorum and fellow of the college in the 1530s ( Erasmus and Cambridge, 34); but the provenance before Smith's ownership remains unknown.
5)
There are other traditions: a pine chair known as the Erasmus Chair, Erasmus' corkscrew, etc.; see Porter, 36n. See H. C. Porter, Reformation and Reaction in Tudor Cambridge ( Cambridge, 1958), for a rich narrative; ch. II is devoted to Erasmus in Cambridge, chapter I presents the Cambridge of Fisher.
6)
Q. in Porter, Introd. to Erasmus and Cambridge, 37, who observes that 'there is a great deal of 'might' about the description'. Yet J.B. Bullinger wove a fine rhetorical passage about the study in the tower in his history of
