MIRANDA, Lidia Raquel. Saint Jerome and his first epistle: rhetorical pattern to conversion. Circe clás. mod. [online]. 2007, n.11, pp. 195-206. ISSN 1851-1724.
The article analyzes certain components from the imaginary in Saint Jerome's first letter that reveal its structure and rhetoric language as well as the themes and Scriptures sections. The author gets his message across by hiding his classical style in an apparently simple and pious story about Jesus' miraculous intervention for the sake of those who love. The epistle unfolds a reflection about the power and truth of the word. The narration concentrates on the woman the image of the Christian ideal of faith and martyrdom on which the whole text elaborate. This section is analysed from the rhetorical point of view as an exemplum, a fragment that encloses an ideological sense.
