Original maroon plasticized cloth with blue spine panels lettered in gilt. Volume 26 of the Fathers of the Church series. From a privileged background, Ambrose was Bishop of Milan from 374 until his death in 397. He was a compelling speaker, a lawyer, and an outstanding student of Greek. He was so well-known and respected while still a catechumen that he was swiftly ushered through both orders of priesthood. Supported by clergy and approved by Emperor Valentinian I, he was consecrated Bishop on December 1, 373. Letters to emperors, bishops, synods, priests, Marcellina (His older sister), and laymen. Cross-reference with letters of the Benedictine edition. 515 pp. with index, plus series list to Volume 58.
