Saint Jerome (c. 347 – 30 September 420; (also Hierom or Jerom) (Latin: Eusebius Sophronius Hieronymus; Greek: Εὐσέβιος Σωφρόνιος Ἱερώνυμος) was a Roman Christian priest, confessor, theologian and historian, and who became a Doctor of the Church. He was the son of Eusebius, of the city of Stridon, which was on the border of Dalmatia and Pannonia. He is best known for his translation of the Bible into Latin (the Vulgate), and his list of writings is extensive.

He is recognised by both the Catholic Church and the Eastern Orthodox Church as a saint. In the latter he is known as St. Jerome of Stridonium or Blessed Jerome.

Famous quotes containing the word jerome:

    The shy man does have some slight revenge upon society for the torture it inflicts upon him. He is able, to a certain extent, to communicate his misery. He frightens other people as much as they frighten him. He acts like a damper upon the whole room, and the most jovial spirits become, in his presence, depressed and nervous.
    Jerome K. Jerome (1859–1927)

    There is no such thing as a moral dress.... It’s people who are moral or immoral.
    —Jennie Jerome Churchill (1854–1921)

    I like work; it fascinates me. I can sit and look at it for hours. I love to keep it by me; the idea of getting rid of it nearly breaks my heart.
    Jerome K. Jerome (1859–1927)
