Jerome in his "Commentary on Isaiah"

Ignorance of the Scriptures is ignorance of Christ.

Jerome in Letters 15:2

I follow no leader but Christ and join in communion with none but your blessedness [Pope Damasus I], that is, with the chair of Peter. I know that this is the rock on which the Church has been built. Whoever eats the Lamb outside this house is profane. Anyone who is not in the ark of Noah will perish when the flood prevails.
