In 384 AD, on the anniversary of the martyrdom of St Peter and Paul, St Jerome wrote a short letter (Letter 31) to Eustochium. In it, he thanked her for the presents (doves, epistels and bracelets) that Eustochium, his pupil, had sent him for the celebration. In the study the author attempts to shed light on the true nature of these gifts.
