The Life and Influence of St. Jerome By Edward Cutts Augustin Largent
eBook (ePub): $18.95
JEROME, though one of the four "great" doctors of the Church, seems never to have been an object of any very tender personal devotion as other saints have been, his appeal being more... More > directly to the head than to the heart. His sanctity and austerity is of the kind that awes rather than attracts, and is provocative of admiration rather than of imitation. For this reason he has been looked at with cool, temperate eyes; and since, moreover, he has so fully written himself down for us, there is little difficulty in discerning the broad outlines of his personality. Presented in this work is an overview of his life, works, doctrine and respective contribution to Christianity. He is most notably remembered and regarded as the translator of the Scriptures in to Latin. Jerome indeed is one who like Augustine stands at the doorway from the Apostolic area and that of era of the Councils which shall impact and shape the Christian doctrine as we know it today.< Less
