Bishop of Milan
Theologian and hymnographer who
played a key role in the defeat of
Neo-Paganism in the West.
In the course of this struggle, he upheld the
the Church from imperial control,
confronting the emperors Theodosius
among others, on numerous controversial issues.
St. Augustine was his disciple, Ambrose' theology was
far more conservative than Augustine's and essentially identical
to that of the Cappadocian Fathers.
