about

Jerome (c. 345-420) was one of the greatest Bibilical scholars of antiquity. Among his achievements was his Latin translations of the Bible `according to the Hebrew', or iuxta Hebraeos. This translation came to constitute the major part of the Vulgate, the standard Bible of LatinChristendom. The author here considers the origin of this project through an analysis of the Quaestiones Hebraicae in Genesim, a commentary on the book of Genesis published at approximately the same time as the first instalments of the translation. The primary focus of the book is the question ofJerome's dependence on Greek scholarship both before and during his own time.
Adam Kamesar is at Hebrew Union College, Cincinnati.

Editorial Reviews

`One of the interesting aspects of A.K.'s work is his emphasis on Jerome's early interest in the Hebrew text...A.K.'s work stands out through the clarity and lucidity of its exposition and argument. Especially his comparison between the approach of Origen and Jerome is exemplary. A goodbibliography and several indexes enhance the usefulness of this monograph.'Ephemerides Theologicae Lovanienses LXXI fasc 1
