Biblische Geschichten für die Jugend was published in 1824 and was the last work of the great writer – admired by Goethe, and then by Benjamin, Kafka, Hermann Hesse, Elias Canetti, Ernst Bloch, Adorno - who would die two years later. This work was translated in two volumes – but very few copies remain – in Chur in 1828-1829, intended for the reformed communities of the Grisons, and accompanied by the translation of his Christian Catechism, 1831. These writings mark the completion of his project of Erasmian conciliation, a bright lesson in peace that remains valid to this day.
