The letters of Charles V were actually written by Alfonso de VALD?S (c. 1490-1532) ; those of Clemens VII by J. Sadoleto, a liberal humanist educator and scholar. Alfonso de Vald?s was full of enthusiasm for the ideas of Erasmus, he considered the pope as a disturber of the public peace, an instigator of war, and a perfidious deceiver. Charles V took Alfonso de Vald?s under his protection against the Inquisition. Ref. Palau 44447 ; Adams C-1377
