St. Jerome in his study is a copper engraving that Dürer completed between 1513 and 1514. During this time Dürer made 11 copper engravings, three of these: St. Jerome in His Study, Melancholia I, and The Knight, Death, and the Devil, are considered his master engravings.
These three prints explore the three activities of man: the active life, the contemplative life, and the intellectual life. Saint Jerome in his study is about the intellectual life, particularly when that life is one of service to God.
