The electrical properties and stabiltiy of Pr$_{6}$O$_{11}$ -based ZnO varistors, which are composed of ZnO-Pr$_{6}$O$_{11}$-Cr$_{2}$O$_{3}$-Er$_{2}$O$_{3}$ based ceramics, were investigated in the Er$_{2}$O$_{3}$ content range of 0.5 to 2.0 mol%. As Er$_{2}$O$_{3}$content is increased up to approximaterly 1.0mol%, the nonlinearity was decreased. Increasing Er$_{2}$O$_{3}$ content further caused the nonlinearity to increase. The varistors with 2.0 mol% Er$_{2}$O$_{3}$ exhibited a high nonlinearity, in which the nonlinear exponent is 47.41 and the leakage current is 1.82 $\mu$A. Furthermore, they showed a very excellent stability, in which the variation rates of the varistor voltage, the nonlinear exponent, and leakage current are -0.52%, -4.09%, and 152.75%, respectively, under DC accelerated aging stress, such as (0.80 V$_{1mA}$9$0^{\circ}C$/12h)+(0.85 V$_{1mA}$115$^{\circ}C$/12h)+(0.90 V$_{1mA}$12$0^{\circ}C$/12h)+(0.95 V$_{1mA}$1$25^{\circ}C$/12h)+(0.95 V$_{1mA}$1$25^{\circ}C$/12h).2h).TEX>/12h).2h).
