AbstractThis article considers the relationship between Jerome and his much younger brother Paulinian, who unfortunately did not write anything that has survived. Nevertheless, through Jerome’s testimony we can extrapolate details of Paulinian’s life, and we can surmise certain aspects about their relationship. The older sibling was a prolific author who was famously involved in very public disputes in the late fourth century, while the younger, it seemed, was content to pursue the monastic life in relative anonymity. However, because of Paulinian’s close relationship and proximity to his brother, he became deeply involved in the so-called Origenist Controversy of the late fourth century, especially because of his improper ordination at the hands of Epiphanius of Cyprus.
