Jerome (Eusebius Hieronymus), c.347-420, was a Father of the Church, whose great work was the translation of the Bible into Latin, the edition known as the Vulgate. According to legend, Jerome tamed a lion by removing a thorn from its paw, and the lion therfore often appears as his attribute in art. The lion depicted here is clearly no threat to the saint, suggesting his harmonious relationship achieved through solitary meditation, prayer, and penance.
