Quotation[Jean] Steinmann's book on St. Jerome [St. Jerome and His Times, New York, 1959] in the refectory is interesting and well done but I am sick of Jerome, his querulous sensitivity, his rages, his politics-and I am tired of Steinmann's anti- Origenism. It is too insistent. I am for Rufinus and St. John Chrysostom.
