about

Jerome was one of the very few early Christian scholars to know any Hebrew. This is a unique introduction, translation, and commentary of his Questions on Genesis - a fascinating work showing a Christian working alongside Jews in an age very different from our own. Jerome's influence on theChurch is well known - but this work is equally important for the light thrown on the history and origin of many ideas at the heart of the Jewish tradition.
C. T. R. Hayward is at University of Durham.

Editorial Reviews

`Hayward's translation is clear and his extended commentary rivals Jerome in the reach of its learning ... Thanks to Hayward, we can fully appreciate Jerome's original and critical use of Jewish texts on Genesis.'Speculum - A Journal of Medieval Studies
