Publisher's Description

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.

Editorial Reviews

"Students of biblical studies, patristics, and Judaica should welcome this annotated translation--the first in any language....An insightful study of a fascinating and unique ancient treatise. Highly recommended for upper-division undergraduates, graduate students, and faculty."--Choice

"Hayward's exemplary volume has filled in great gaps... by his wealth of knowledge of the biblical versions and Semantic material of the period."--Bryn Mawr Classical Review

"Hayward's translation is clear and his extended commentary rivals Jerome in the reach of its learning,...Thanks to Hayward, we can fully appreciate Jerome's original and critical use of Jewish texts on Genesis."--Speculum
