St. Jerome in His Study

Baptistery, Cathedral of St. Lawrence, Trogir

In his cave with the lion that is his attribute, Jerome studies one of his books of scripture. Outside the cave we see a dead tree and, on the left, two dragons with wings and two snakes, representing Jerome's account of living among "scorpions and wild beasts" in the desert.
