This paper is a contribution to a controversial issue, namely the history of the title of Jerome’s De viris inlustribus. After a survey of current scholarship on this topic and an examination of the data at our disposal, the Author comes to the following conclusions: Jerome published his work without giving it a title. Rather, he supplied it with a prefatory letter addressed to Dexter. The work started circulating in this way. Different titles documented from literary sources and in manuscript tradition are a consequence of this initial lack.

Abstract

This paper is a contribution to a controversial issue, namely the history of the title of Jerome’s De viris inlustribus. After a survey of current scholarship on this topic and an examination of the data at our disposal, the Author comes to the following conclusions: Jerome published his work without giving it a title. Rather, he supplied it with a prefatory letter addressed to Dexter. The work started circulating in this way. Different titles documented from literary sources and in manuscript tradition are a consequence of this initial lack.
