Letters of Jerome Asceticism, Biblical Exegesis, and the Construction of Christian Authority in Late Antiquity

Beschreibung

In life Jerome's authority was frequently questioned, yet following his death he was venerated as a saint. Andrew Cain systematically examines Jerome's idealized self-presentation across the extant epistolary corpus, exploring how and why Jerome used letter writing as a means to bid for status as an expert on the Bible and ascetic spirituality.
