Addressee: Rufinus
Date: 398 (Kelly p. 212)

Latin Text: CSEL 55, pp. 23-29
Notes: Rufinus, a Roman Presbyter (to be carefully distinguished from Rufinus of Aquileia and Rufinus the Syrian), had written to Jerome for an explanation of the judgment of Solomon (1 Kings 3:16-20). This Jerome gives at length, treating the narrative as a parable and making the false and true mothers types of the Synagogue and the Church. (Fremantle, p. 154)
