Hieronymus is to go on trial. He has to choose between his beloved Greek and Roman philosophers or dedicating himself entirely to the Holy Scriptures. In his famous vision, he fights against doubt. He withdraws into the desert where he meets other scholars (and later saints). Bressane uses sober means, but great invention, to evoke the concrete and spiritual world of Saint Hieronymus in a very original, extremely stylish and also very funny film. A film that meticulously follows the indestructible old texts while achieving great visual purity.
