Origin: From the vernacular form of the saint's name Hieronymus, from Ἱερώνυμος hieros "holy" + onoma "name".
Saint Jerome is an ancient Latin Christian priest, confessor, theologian and historian, who also became a Doctor of the Church. Though often considered exclusively a saint of the Roman Catholic Church, Jerome was a Latin Christian who predated the East-West Schism which occurred in the 11th century. He was the son of Eusebius, of the city of Stridon, which was on the border of Dalmatia and Pannonia. He is best known for his translation of the Bible into Latin, and his commentaries on the Gospel of the Hebrews. His list of writings is extensive. He is recognised by the Catholic Church, the Eastern Orthodox Church, the Lutheran Church, and the Church of England as a saint. Jerome is commemorated on 30 September with a memorial.
