Saint Jerome is a Doctor of the Church and the Patron Saint of Scholars and in particular of the Catholic Biblical Association. He was born in 331 AD in what is now known as Croatia and eventually lived the last 30 years of his life in a cave in Bethlehem, dying in 420.
Arguably, his most famous line is "Ignorance of Scripture is ignorance of Christ" which occurred in his commentary on Isaiah.
His learning was a way of purification for him. He is most famous for his translation of the Scriptures in Latin (the Vulgate).
May the Lord richly bless all our endeavors and keep us faithful. May our work help in the building up of His kingdom.

The CBA is pleased to announce the publication of the two newest volumes in our "CBQ Monograph Series":
To order please see the main page of the CBQMS section of this website.
No. 51: Yeong Seon Kim, FMM, The Temple Administration
and the Levites in Chronicles, $16 (members $12.80).
No. 52: Deena E. Grant, Divine Anger in the Hebrew Bible, $15 (members $12).
Please note: To search these notes, two steps are needed: first search for the Old Testament book, then for the particular verse (colon between chapter and verse). Be sure you are at the text you are searching for, because there are many cross-references in these notes. We hope to have soon a more sophisticated program provided by the USCCB.
