Who was Erasmus?

Erasmus was a Dutch humanist and theologian. In 1516, he publish a Greek-Latin parallel of the New Testament to the corrupt Latin Vulgate with the help of a publisher named John Froben. From this New Testament, the Latin Vulgate was shown just as corrupt and inaccurate it was and showed how important it was to go back to the original Greek and original Hebrew languages.
