Saint Jerome in the Renaissance

Just as they aspired to revive the Greek and Roman past, so the humanist scholars of the Renaissance sought to retrieve the early Christian era. Among the most fully studied figures of Christian antiquity was Saint Jerome. Eugene Rice's award-winning book traces the saint's changing images and fortunes from 1300 to 1600 and charts how culture—popular and elite, secular and sacred, pietistic and scholarly—celebrated those aspects of Jerome's life that best suited its own purposes.
