Jerome (340-420) was certainly one of the foremost scholars of his day. Perhaps best known for his Latin Translation of the Bible which became known as the Vulgate he did much work to bring the work of scholars from previous generations into a form that the Western Church could use. His work includes transitions of the homilies of Origen on Jeremiah, Ezekiel, and Isaiah.

On his birth Jerome wrote in his work De viris illustribus (On Illustrious Men): "Jerome was born to his father Eusebius, [in the] town of Strido, which the Goths overthrew, and was once at the border between Dalmatia and Pannonia." Today this would be within Slovenia. 

Jerome produced commentaries of his own on the books of Hosea, Joel, Amos, Zachariah, Malachi, Daniel, Isaiah, Ezekiel, and Jeremiah. He also left us sermons and treatises on Mark, homilies on the Psalms, on various subjects, and on the Gospels. Also from Jerome we have Dialogi contra Pelagianos or Dialogue with the Pelagians. Which is a denunciation of Pelagianism.

He wrote many epistles on various topics and the treatises listed below. My list here is short because it is those works that have some impact on other articles on this site.
