Erasmus in Rotterdam

House of Erasmus

Cosmopolitism, peace, and non-violence were important ideals to Erasmus. The Rotterdam foundation Huis van Erasmus (House of Erasmus) promotes these ideals. In Erasmus’s footsteps, Huis van Erasmus aims at offering a perspective of a liveable, peaceful, and endurable world with room and respect for others. Independent of any political or religious conviction it gives a practical, contemporary interpretation of Erasmus’s spiritual legacy based on universal, humanistic values.
