Ambrose

$ 2.99

Saint Ambrose, a fourth century Bishop of Milan, is a prominent figure of the early Christian Church, initiating ideas that widely impacted medieval conceptions of church and state relations. Serving as a model bishop that viewed the church as rising above the ruins of the Roman Empire, Ambrose is also remembered as the teacher that converted and baptised St. Augustine of Hippo, the great Christian theologian. Ambrose’s literary works, principally sermons, have been acclaimed as masterpieces of Latin eloquence, providing invaluable models of the transmission of Greek philosophy and theology in the West. Delphi’s Ancient Classics series provides eReaders with the wisdom of the Classical world, with both English translations and the original Latin texts. This comprehensive eBook presents Ambrose’s collected works, with illustrations, informative introductions and the usual Delphi bonus material. (Version 1)
