Abstract: The painting by Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio depicting St Jerome Writing, forms part of the artist’s output during his short stay in Malta. The attention this painting deserves as a masterpiece in its own right is often overshadowed by the monumental painting depicting the Beheading of St John the Baptist that Caravaggio also produced during his stay here. The recent exhibition organised by The St John’s Co-Cathedral Foundation, as a part of the celebrations commemorating the completion of the restoration of the Chapel of the Italian langue, exhibited this painting as the focal point, since it once adorned the said chapel.
