Jerome, Saint. [Letter to Paula and Eustochium, 387-388 (2)] in Commentarius in Epistolam ad Philemonem 599-603

[Letter from Saint Jerome to Eustochium]
Jerome wrote this commentary on Paul's epistle before he wrote the other three (see , 145) at the request of Paula and her daughter Eustochium following, as he says at the beginning of the first book, the order they imposed. In the prologue, he argues for the authenticity of the epistle against those who reject it because it deals with less than highly spiritual matters.
