This chapter describes the pedagogical streams and tributaries that preserved fragmentary but precious Jewish teachings in the various corpora of the Church Fathers. It explains the assorted sub-surface channels and teachers that use the narrative materials of the Jews, such as the iudaicae fabulae, and exegetical points that redirected to St. Jerome. Jerome is best known for what came to be called the Vulgate rendering of the books of the Jewish canon of the Old Testament. His own term for his version was the Iuxta Hebraeos, the version according to the Hebrews. This chapter also discusses a large number of lengthy letters, homilies, onomasticon, various anti-heretical works, and a series of commentaries written by Jerome that Christians consider to be the prophetic books of the Old Testament.
