Caption: Saint Jerome in his study. Jerome was a priest, historian, and scholar, who worked in Rome in the 4th and 5th centuries, publishing histories and translations of the Christian bible. Most of the work on the Vulgate, the translation of the Bible into Latin, was done by Jerome, and this eventually became the official version recognised by the Catholic Church. This woodcut is from the Biblia Dudesch, a version of the Christian bible that was published in 1522 in Halberstadt, in what is now Germany.
