We can observe the development of Erasmusʼs view of the Ottomans, particularly in the light of their military successes, as part of the thinking of this leading representative of Transalpine humanism, who enjoyed general respect among European monarchs in the first third of the 16th century. From the initial position of a Christian pacifist who wished to overcome the Ottomans by Christianizing them, he arrived at a conviction of the need for a military solution. Erasmusʼs work Utilissima consultatio de bello Turcis inferendo written in 1530, which is analysed in this study, is an appeal to the Augsburg Imperial Diet and to Charles V to take on the duty of the necessary defence of Europe and Christianity from the Ottomans and Islam.
