Augustine on the Scriptures

Augustine writes to Jerome in Letter no. 82:

“I confess to our Charity that I have learned to yield this respect and honor only to the canonical books of Scripture: of these alone do I most firmly believe that the authors were completely free from error…Better far that I should read with certainty and persuasion of its truth the Holy Scripture, placed on the highest (even heavenly) pinnacle of authority, and should, (accept) without questioning the trustworthiness of its statements.”
