at all'. 37 Two weeks after being made rector Amerbach went to Freiburg in order to bring back Erasmus to Basel, and as Reedijk has plausibly suggested, the help of the aged scholar -- whose reputation was still high away from Wittenberg, and whose learning was still impressive -- was sought for the sake of the university. 38

And so back to Basel he went in the summer of 1535, probably between mid-June and early August (see Epistles 3028 and 3032).39


Notes
1)
So described by Bonifacius Amerbach (q. by Bainton, Erasmus, 218-9).
2)
See R. Wackernagel, Geschichte der Stadt Basel, III ( Basel, 1924) 490, 496.
3)
Wackernagel, 494, 501, 507, 509-11; Bainton, 220. See now C. M.N.Eire, Against the Idols: The Reformation of Worship From Erasmus to Calvin ( Cambridge, 1986) especially ch.4.
4)
See Tracy, Erasmus, 211 and the authorities there cited.
5)
Afterwards in Freiburg he lamented (Ep. 2203, the prefatory letter 'To the Reader' for his Opus Epistolarum of 1529), 'Because of moving (migratio) I have lost many things that I would now like to have; everything has really been confused' ( Allen VIII, 250/24-6). We who have moved much in the 20th c. can sympathise.
6)
See "'A Fish Diet'" ( Ichthyophagia, first published in 1526) for its expression of christian liberty ( Thompson, Colloquies, 349-50) and with its sharply etched anecdote concerning hypocritical piety over fasting.
7)
Bainton, 223. Guggisberg in BR calls attention to 'a last meeting {that} took place in Froben's garden shortly before Erasmus' departure for Freiburg. The two men parted in peace (Eps. 2158, 2196)'.
8)
This was of importance, for Erasmus had been unable to ride horseback for two years and on the move from Basel to Freiburg he had to be carried in a litter (Ep. 2192 to Fugger, 7 July 1529; Allen VIII, 224/64 ff.).
9)
Not to be confused with the Dominican Johannes Faber, our Fabri ( 1478-1541) was schooled at Constance and then Ulm, where he received the BA and possibly MA; at Tübingen, where he enrolled in theology and law, he came under the influence of a professor who directed him towards the via antiqua (the revised Thomist, Albertist, and Scotist schools {see CHIMP, 269} so that he was known to friends as a Scotist) and where he was ordained. In 1509 he matriculated at Freiburg and studied theology and law under Gregor Reisch, the author of the long-lived Margarita philosophica ( 1496), and Erasmus' predecessor as adviser to Froben on the great edition of Jerome, as well as Ulrich Zasius; he was awarded the doctorate of both laws (civil and canon) in 1510-11. In 1521 he was appointed suffragan bishop of Constance, in time for Erasmus' visit there. An adviser to archduke Ferdinand from 1523, Fabri had a wide range of duties and in 1530 he was to become bishop of Vienna, where he estabalished the Collegium Trilingue of St Nicholas ( BR).
