Ambrose’s Influence on Augustine – Doctors of the Church Series – CHS 71


Ambrose of Milan played a very important role in Augustine’s conversion. When Augustine met Ambrose, he was in a difficult position: he was no longer intellectually committed to Manicheism but he had not yet overcome some of the major philosophical and theological challenges which the movement had posed to him. After listening to a sermon of Ambrose, however, Augustine began to reconsider his disregard for the Catholic faith. Augustine encountered in Ambrose a very eloquent and learned Bishop of the Catholic Church. Join us this week as we provide a brief overview of how Ambrose played a significant role in shaping Augustine’s thinking about the nature of God, the meaning of the Scriptures and the proper interpretation of the Old Testament.
