A Major Player 

in the 4th century and we have the letters to prove it.  Pope Damasus I asked Jerome for a new translation of the Bible and Augustine was upset about that.  There were already way too many versions of the Bible with way too many errors and according to Augustine the last thing they needed was another version of the Bible.  Jerome was not intimidated.  His Vulgate would become the official Bible of the Church when they needed it the most.
