Evidence

Texts quoted from and discussed at length in E. M. Forster"s Commonplace Book (1942) include St Jerome, Letters ("Loeb"), with closing remarks: "Now farewell St Jerome for ever, but I must not ignore some similarities between us: we both decline to concentrate on the political catastrophe. Your obsession with virginity helps you, for it is in danger whether there"s peace or war." [in notes, Forster expresses disapprobation for Jerome"s attitudes to sexuality in particular, describing Letter 117 (p.136; on female modesty) as "terrifying in its blindness and vigour"]
