Williams, Megan Hale. The monk and the book: Jerome and the making of Christian scholarship. Chicago: University of Chicago Press, 2006. 8vo (23.5 cm, 9.25"). x, , 315,  pp.; illus. $40.00
"Revisiting Jerome with approaches drawn from recent cultural history — including the work of Bourdieu, Foucault, and Roger Chartier — Williams proposes new interpretations that remove obstacles to understanding his life and works. Examining issues such as Jerome's literary persona, the form and contents of his library, and the intellectual framework of his commentaries, Williams shows that Jerome's work on the Hebrew scriptures helped to construct a new culture of learning, a fusion of the identities of scholar and monk that continues to reverberate in contemporary cultures of learning in the West."
