Saint Jerome in the Renaissance

Winner of the Award for Excellence from the American Academy of Religion

Winner of the Philip Schaff Prize from the American Society of Church History

Winner of the John Gilmary Shea Prize from the American Catholic Historical Association

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.
