Book Description

As a scholar, writer and ascetic, Jerome was a major intellectual force in the early Church and influenced the ideals of Christian chastity and poverty for many generations after his death. This book assembles a representative selection of his voluminous output. It will help readers to a balanced portrait of a complex and brilliant, but not always likeable man.

Reviews

'The book succeeds in achieving much in a short compass ... We should be grateful for a volume which provides both an informed introduction to Jerome for those unfamiliar with him and a stimulus to new thinking for his cognoscenti.' – Journal of Roman Studies
