Girolamo e l'epistolario tra Seneca e san Paolo
The article begins by noting that the first mention of the Correspondence between Seneca and Paul appears in De viris illustribus of Jerome. After a summary of the status quaestionis, it examines the context of the De viris, particularly the information on Seneca. Then the article presents an analysis of some aspects of the Correspondence in order to highlight the harmony between the views of the Correspondence and the ideas of Jerome, especially the considerations on the inadequacy of the language of the Pauline letters. After finding other reasons of convergence, we formulate a hypothesis about the origin of the Correspondence.
