The Perpetual Virginity of the Virgin Mary: Against HelvidiusThe Perpetual Virginity of the Virgin Mary: Against Helvidius - A certain Helvidius said that since Jesus had brothers, Mary was not a virgin after his birth. He also maintained that this demonstrates that marriage is better than virginity. Jerome takes the opposite view.
To Pammachius Against John of JerusalemTo Pammachius Against John of Jerusalem - Unpublished during Jerome's lifetime. An ugly little chapter in Church history. Epiphanius of Salamis, a heresy-hunting bishop, had castigated Jerome's bishop John of Jerusalem for Origenism. Epiphanius then urged Jerome to repudiate John, ordained Jerome's brother by force, and Jerome was effectively excommunicated for approximately four years.
