After comparing what writings he could find, Erasmus wrote corrections between the lines of the manuscripts he was using among which was Minuscule 2 and sent them as proofs to Froben. The information and the delay allowed Erasmus to request a "Publication Privilege" of four years for the Greek New Testament to ensure that his work would be published first. Pope Leo X later made the dispensation permanent, a considerable privilege at the time. Though he remained loyal to the Church of Rome, he did not receive last rites, and there is no evidence that he asked for a priest.

Together, the first and second editions sold 3, copies. This was an amazing insight into the early Reformation. Here he gained the friendship of all the considerable persons of the city, nor could have failed to have made his fortune, had he not been prevailed upon by the great promises of his friends in England to return thither on Henry VIII coming to the crown. At first he seems to praise Erasmus for his intellect, but then backhands with a series of rebukes. I have never entered their conventicles, but I have sometimes seen them returning from their sermons, the countenances of all of them displaying rage, and wonderful ferocity, as though they were animated by the evil spirit Such achievements counted, for him, as moral achievements, almost on a par with the Christian virtues.

He never, however, wrote anything in the vernacular- all of his publications were in Greek or Latin. While the orthodox condemned him, the implication that errors were embedded in church tenets made him a hero to some, including an obscure young man seeking certitude in a monastery in Wittenberg. Whereas Luther displayed the courage of his convictions, Erasmus comes off as a self-protective pragmatist, seeking accommodation with the church so as to pursue his life with a minimum of upset. Only fifteen errors have been found in the entire six volumes and four languages of Cisneros's bible, an extraordinarily low number for the time.

Erasmus book

During four trips to England, Erasmus became friends with leading intellectual figures such as John Colet and Thomas More, and taught at Cambridge University.
