St Jerome (Born: c.347 AD, Died: 420 AD) is a key figure in our campaign, he is renowned and praised for his many Commentaries on Scriptures and for his masterpiece, the translation of the Latin Vulgate.

Paintings of St Jerome often include his famous lion who, according to legend, guarded and assisted him in the wilderness after he pulled a thorn from the lion’s paw.

To celebrate St Jerome and his lion we have created a group study resource for adults (based on the article by Fr. Jerome Ituah, OCD) and several activity sheets for children to share St Jerome’s love of Scripture further.


Have you met one of our lions yet? Look out for them at one of our Scripture Tours in 2021!
