Jerônimo ou Jerónimo , também conhecido por Jerônimo de Estridão, foi um sacerdote cristão ilírio, destacado como teólogo e historiador e considerado confessor e Doutor da Igreja pela Igreja Católica. Filho de Eusébio, da cidade de Estridão, na fronteira entre a Dalmácia e a Panônia, é mais conhecido por sua tradução da Bíblia para o latim e por seus comentários sobre o Evangelho dos Hebreus, mas sua lista de obras é extensa.

São Jerônimo é reconhecido como santo pelos católicos, ortodoxos e anglicanos. Não é tido como santo para os luteranos, pelo fato de estes não canonizarem personalidades.

—  Jerome

Letter 52 http://books.google.com/books?id=1GZRAAAAcAAJ&q=%22negotiatorem+clericum%22+%22inope+divitem+ex%22+gloriosum+%22quandam+pestem+fuge%22&pg=PA248#v=onepage
Letters
Original: (la) Negotiatorem clericum, et ex inope divitem, ex ignobili gloriosum quasi quandam pestem fuge.

„I am told that your mother is a religious woman, a widow of many years' standing; and that when you were a child she reared and taught you herself. Afterwards when you had spent some time in the flourishing schools of Gaul she sent you to Rome, sparing no expense and consoling herself for your absence by the thought of the future that lay before you. She hoped to see the exuberance and glitter of your Gallic eloquence toned down by Roman sobriety, for she saw that you required the rein more than the spur. So we are told of the greatest orators of Greece that they seasoned the bombast of Asia with the salt of Athens and pruned their vines when they grew too fast. For they wished to fill the wine-press of eloquence not with the tendrils of mere words but with the rich grape-juice of good sense.“

—  Jerome

„Yet such is the order of nature. While truth is always bitter, pleasantness waits upon evildoing.“

—  Jerome

Letter 40
Letters
Original: (la) Ita se natura habet, ut amara sit veritas, blanda vitia existimentur.
