30 September is the Feast of St. Jerome, one of the Four Doctors of the Western Church. Jerome supposedly died at Bethlehem on 30 September 420 CE. A very popular saint in Italian art, Jerome is sometimes shown as as a cardinal in his study, in reference to his work translating the first Latin Bible. More commonly, Jerome is shown as a penitent hermit, dressed in a simple gray tunic with a bare chest, which he pounded with a stone to feel the pain of Jesus on the cross. Many images conflate these different roles to reference Jerome’s multifaceted reputation. He is also typically accompanied by a lion in reference to the story that he removed a thorn from the animal’s paw, which left the beast eternally indebted to him.
