TMST 8552 Ambrose of Milan (Fall: 3 )
This course presents the life and thought of Ambrose of Milan (c.340–397). By considering his cultural formation, theological project, and major struggles and achievements, we will come to know Ambrose as a singular, yet representative, figure in the early church: “The most Roman of the Fathers” (Dawson) who borrowed extensively from the Greeks; a major player in matters of church and state; a biblical exegete; a liturgist and poet; and an original and creative theologian.
