Sample text

66 Jerome is aware of the new churches built from the time of Constantine. In his translation of Eusebius’ Onomasticon he adds to the text details of the churches built in Palestine since Eusebius’ time. Years later, in his ep. 120, 8,67 in his discussion of the status of Jerusalem as a holy city or not, he contrasts the ruins of the Temple where the Jews mourn with the triumphantly rebuilt Christian city where ‘the crowd of believers in Christ see new roofs of churches arising daily’—in Christum turba credentium noua cotidie uideat ecclesiae tecta consurgere.

82 The vocabulary: cryptam, rarum desuper lumen, is almost identical to that of his description of the catacombs quoted above. Jerome is using the description he had once applied to the catacombs as an image of his problems in translating the book of Daniel. Thus Daniel and the catacombs are clearly associated in his mind. There is a further association between Daniel and the vita Pauli. In Jerome’s first letter, which is about the attempt to execute an innocent Christian woman at Vercelli, Jerome compares his heroine to Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, the ‘Three Children in the Fiery Furnace,’ to Susannah and the Elders, and to Daniel in the Lions’ den.

He cites the legendary feats of asceticism of the Syrian monks, at least one of which is paralleled in Theodoret, as will be seen below. Caves joined by tunnels to form underground hideouts for refugees from taxes and persecution are very commonly found in SyriaPalaestina. Jerome knew that they served as refuges for Jews during both the First Revolt [the Jewish War] against the Romans and the Bar Kokhba Revolt: ad Vespasiani Adrianique haec referunt tempora . . 47 tains various accounts of searches for hermits living in caves in the desert next to a spring and palm tree.
