St. Jerome and the Historical Context of His Work „On Illustrious Men“

pages: 91-106

Abstract

The author deals with the contextualisation of the work „On Illustrious Men“ in the overall St. Jerome’s literary- theological work. By following the structure and the tendency of St. Jerome’s work and by setting this pioneering achievement (as the first written history of christian literature) in relation to the general currents of that era and certain moments from St. Jerome’s biography, the assessment of the mentioned work for the theologians and historians of the Early Church becomes the center of this article. Moreover, in addition to the review of possible ubications of ancient Stridon, the article also deals with the history of veneration of St. Jerome in both Eastern and Western christian traditions.
