Richard Simon comments on Eustochium

Steven Avery


There is also some evidence that when whoever compiled the books of the Latin text we call the Vulgate could not find a preface by St Jerome specifically on the canonical Epistles, he made one up imitating Jerome’s style, borrowing some of his expressions and even including the name of Eustochium.12
12 St Julia Eustochium (370-ca. 419), addressee of epistles from St Jerome.

Andrew Hunwick unreliable edition.
