#196 COMMENTARY ON THE NEW TESTAMENT Jerome (347-420 A.D.)
In the end or consummation of things, all shall be restored to their original state, and be again united in one body. We cannot be ignorant that Christs blood benefited the angels and those who are in hell; though we know not the manner in which it produced such effects. The apostate angels shall become such as they were created; and man, who has been cast out of paradise, shall be restored thither again. And this shall be accomplished in such a way, that all shall be united together by mutual charity, so that the members will delight in each other, and rejoice in each others promotion.
The apostate angels, and the prince of this world, though now ungovernable, plunging themselves into the depths of sin, shall, in the end, embrace the happy dominion of Christ and His saints.
