Chronologically among Larbaud's last works, the volume"Sous l'invocation de Saint Jerome"opens with this essay celebrating the exemplary figure and mighty achievement of the patron saint of translators: it was Saint Jerome who translated the Bible from Greek into Latin. To Saint Jerome the Christian West owes a large part of the Vulgate, its Book. In Saint Jerome all subsequent translators have had an ancestor and a model."
