    Jerome replied to them in a long treatise in two books, written in From this work it would appear that Jovinian maintained several heterodox opinions about virginity and sin. He felt that virgins, widows and married women, even remarried widows, are of equal merit in the Christian community. Jovinian addressed his virginal reader. Excerpts: Jerome ( - ) Calling Married Believers to Sexual Abstinence. Marriage is only allowed as second best. Letter To Ageruchia, §4. (An appeal to this widow not to marry again) Lastly, that Paul may compress into a few words all the reasons for such marriages, he shews the motive of his command by saying: "for some are already turned aside after Satan.".

    "Jerome's Libellus de virginitate servanda, written at Rome in A.D. , sets out the manner of life appropriate to a Christian virgin living in society.   See this online ebook: On the Perpetual Virginity of Blessed Mary: Against Helvidius, by Saint Jerome, translated by W. H. Fremantle, with the assistance of the Rev. G. Lewis and the Rev. W. G. Martley; in The Early Church Fathers and Other Works (Edinburgh, Scotland, Wm. B. Eerdmans Pub. Co., ); and in Nicene and. 1 Corinthians What will be the glory of that day when Mary, the mother of the Lord, shall come to meet you, accompanied by her virgin choirs! (St. Jerome, Ep. 22, PL 22, ) He wrote on the perpetual virginity of the Virgin Mary.

      Helvidius writes a book against Jerome — Jerome replies — His defence of virginity — Sketch of domestic manners — Jovinian writes a book against Jerome — Jerome's reply. CHAPTER XI. A.D. The Mirror of the Clergy 89Pages: In the year AD , Jerome writes that Ignatius, Polycarp, Justin Martyr, and Irenaeus all “held these same views” of Mary’s perpetual virginity and “wrote volumes replete with wisdom” (in his The Perpetual Virginity of Blessed Mary: Against Helvidius, section 19). No writings from these 4 men survived that unambiguously identifies. Paula's son-in-law, Pammachius, sent some of this heretical writing to Jerome, and he, in , wrote two books against Jovinian. In the first he described the excellence of virginity. The books were written in Jerome's vehement style and there were expressions in them which seemed lacking in respect for honorable matrimony.
