Nicene and Ante-Nicene Fathers, Ser. II, Vol. X:
Selections from the Letters of St. Ambrose.: Selections from the Letters of St. Ambrose.

Early Church Fathers  Index     

p. 409

Note on the Letters of St. Ambrose.

Of the 91 Epistles considered genuine by the Benedictine Editors, sixty-three are referred by them to fairly certain dates, 3409 and a large number of these would well be worth translation, throwing as they do so clear a light on the events of St. Ambrose’s life, and in many cases on the history of the period. Only a few are here presented to the reader.

Perhaps some others might have been better selected, but if they were to be so few, it seemed as if these would give the best general impression of the indomitable energy and fearless constancy of the great Bishop.


Footnotes

409:3409

This is really in excess of the number which are now to be considered as fixed in date.


Next: Memorial of Symmachus, the Prefect of the City.
