St. GEROLAMO (347 - 30 September 419/420), presbyter, biblist, translator of the Old Testament in Latin, theologian and Roman monk. Sofronio Eusebio Girolamo, born in Illiria, studied in Rome, then to Tereviri and Aquileia to lead an ascetic life; disturbed by the disasters that had arisen in the community, moved to Calcidia in Syria, where traditionally spent two years in hermitage with the only lion's company, grateful for taking a pin from the paw. Again disappointed with the diatribe that was born among the anacoreti because of the Aryan doctrine, he returned to Antioch, where he studied in depth and was ordained priest. At Constantinople he perfected the study of the Greek, then returned to Rome where he was secretary of Pope Damasus I. He was a fiery promoter of clerical celibacy, finally founded a male monatero in Bethlehem, where he ended his days devoted to the editing and translation of sacred texts, and teaching. Father and Doctor of the Church, patron of translators and archaeologists, commemoration on September 30, day of death (Dies Natalis, birth to heaven). Colored Etching, Italy 1886
