Saint Jerome, Early Church Father, Father of the Early ChurchSaint Jerome: Biography and Online Writings


Saint Jerome was born around 342 AD in a town on the Eastern Adriatic coast, in the imperial territory the Romans called Dalmatia.  He studied in Rome, where he was baptized, and everntually became a monk.  St. Jerome learnt Hebrew while spending a few years in Syria as a hermit.  After His ordination to the priesthood, he traveled to Rome where  he served as the secretary of Pope Damasus from 382-385.  After the Pope's death, he settled in Bethlehem where he founded a monastery and dedicated himself to study and the translation of the Scriptures from the original languages into Latin.  St. Jerome's translation, known as the Vulgate, was used in the Latin rite of the Catholic Church for over 1,000 years.


The biblical scholarship of St. Jerome was extraordinary, and he remains one of the greatest Scripture scholars, Fathers, and Doctors of the Catholic Church.  He died ten years before St. Augustine, in 420 AD.

Catholic Bible Study, Great Adventure Bible Studyby Jeff Cavins 

 This series offers a compelling overview of God’s plan of salvation, which is where every Catholic Bible Study ought to start.  Beginning with the first talk, you will discover how the Bible Time Line system developed by Jeff Cavins answers many of the questions we all have about the people, places and events of the Bible. Once you understand the “big picture” of God’s plan of salvation—and where the various biblical characters fit in this overall story—you develop a new appreciation for the Scriptures. Your understanding of the Scripture readings at Mass will truly come alive. Begin the journey today. Order your full set of 24 talks for your personal study, or for RCIA or other adult faith formation class!
