The Nicene and Post-Nicene Fathers series of the 19th century rendered into English many of Jerome's treatises and letters while bypassing his biblical commentaries as well as some of his most important exegetical letters. This omission, which was not helpful to scholarship, was probably due to the great length of these works. Although the problem was partly remedied by some new English translations of the 20th century, the present volume and its forthcoming continuation ( Exegetical Epistles, Volume 2) fill a significant lacuna by translating into English the Scriptural exegesis that Jerome conveyed in his relatively unknown epistles, many of which were composed in response to queries he had received from various correspondents. Many of these letters are presented here for the first time in English.

Based on the Hilberg edition, this volume contains new translations, introduced and annotated, of Jerome's Epistles 18-21, 25-30, 34-37, 42, 53, 55-56, 59, 64-65, 72-74, and 78. The second volume, to appear in Spring 2024, will offer nine more epistles. Together, these two volumes will present two newly translated letters from the famous exchange with Augustine over the meaning of Galatians 2:11-14 (Ep. 56 in volume 1 and Ep. 112 in volume 2). Overall, this collection hopes to serve as a useful introduction to Jerome's approach to the interpretation of both the Old and the New Testament. Some letters focus on the historical meaning of Pauline and Gospel texts, while others contain allegorical expositions of Old Testament passages. Jerome's competence as a Hebrew scholar will become evident to the reader of these volumes as well as his thorough acquaintance with the antecedent Greek and Latin Christian exegetical traditions.
