Saint Jerome's Hebrew Questions on Genesis

Synopsis

Jerome was one of the very few early Christian scholars to know any Hebrew. This new edition of his Questions on Genesis includes an introduction, translation, and commentary to reveal a fascinating work showing a Christian working alongside Jews in an age very different from our own. Jerome's influence on the Church is well known--but this work is equally important for the light thrown on the history and origin of many ideas at the heart of the Jewish tradition.
