...grew close to Rufinus of Aquileia. Jerome would later describe the group as ‘a community of the blessed’ ( Chron . 247f Helm). After residing in Aquileia for only three years, Jerome suddenly departed under suspicious circumstances which would later cause him to write letters of apology ( epp . 11–12). Jerome took refuge in the Syrian desert. After residing with Evagrius of Antioch for a period, in 375 , Jerome withdrew to become a hermit for eighteen months. The period seems to have been a fruitful one for Jerome, but he eventually was drawn into a...

... ( c.347–420 ), biblical scholar and Christian ascetic . Born in the 340s in Stridon (near Aquileia), now just inside Croatia, Jerome lived a remarkably active life in many parts of the Roman Empire until his death in 420 : this in spite of his reputation as a dedicated and hermit-like scholar lodged in relatively remote Bethlehem from the age of forty or so onward. The scholarship is rightly what we remember first. Jerome was one of the most learned men of his era, steeped in the literature and thought of the ancient world as well as in the biblical...

In these paintings and engravings (Antonello da Messina, 1474 : London, NG; Dürer engr. 1514 ) he is often shown as a cardinal with the red hat beside him. Cardinals were not created until many centuries after Jerome's death, but it is likely that his activity as assistant to Pope Damasus was responsible for this anachronism.
