St. Jeromeís Commentaries on Galatians, Titus, and Philemon
Scheck, Thomas P.

Notre Dame, Ind.: University of Notre Dame Press, 2010 pp. xi + 416. $40.00

Description: Much of Jerome's prodigious exegetical output has never been translated into English. In this volume, Thomas P. Scheck presents the first English translation of St. Jerome's commentaries on Galatians, Titus, and Philemon. Jerome followed the Greek exegesis of Origen of Alexandria, proceeding step by step and producing the most valuable of all of the patristic commentaries on these three epistles of St. Paul. Jerome's exegesis is characterized by extensive learning, acute historical and theological criticism, lively and vigorous exposition, and homiletical exhortation.

Subjects: Bible, New Testament, Pauline Epistles, Galatians, Philemon, Deutero-Pauline Epistles, Titus, Literature
