Sample text

In 398, Rufinus published in Rome his Latin translation of Origen’s major study On First Principles or Peri Archon. In the preface, he explained his theory of translation, a topic Jerome, too, had dealt with some time before. The issue of falsifying the original and forging orthodox doctrine incited the discourse ‘on the principles of good translation’,36 Thus, Rufinus: Wherever I have found something in his books contrary to the truth concerning the trinity which he has in other places spoken in a strictly orthodox sense, I have either omitted it as something foreign and interpolated, or set it down in BETHLEHEM (I) 23 terms agreeing with the rule of faith which we find him constantly assenting to.

And, in the Latin west, he played an important role as an intermediary of Greek and Hebrew exegesis. Jerome’s exegetical importance can properly be compared with the theological importance of Augustine. The image of a learned exegete of Holy Scripture, promoted by Jerome himself, was absolutely necessary to obtain authority among, and support from, well-to-do Christians. Very much to the point here was his reputation as vir trilinguis, which underlay recognition of his prestige as a translator and commentator of Scripture, both by contemporaries and later generations.

26 The cruel judge rises, as if he were defeated. She still prays to the Lord. Her limbs are wrenched from their sockets, she only turns her eyes to heaven. Another confesses their common guilt. 27 6 In the meantime she has but one thing to say: ‘Beat me, burn me, tear me in pieces. I have not done it. If you do not believe my words, the day will come when this charge will be carefully examined. ’ Exhausted by this time, the torturer was sighing and moaning;28 nor could he find a place for a fresh wound.
