Ambrose of Milan

Enchantment and Creed in the Hymns of Ambrose of Milan (Oxford University Press, 2016) by School of Theology and Ministry Assistant Professor Brian P. Dunkle, S.J., offers the first critical overview of the hymns of Ambrose of Milan in the context of fourth-century doctrinal song and Ambrose’s own catechetical preaching. Engaging the mass of literature on Ambrose, early Christian hymns and poetry, and doctrinal dispute in the fourth century, Fr. Dunkle’s volume makes scholarly contributions to deciphering Ambrose’s meaning, establishing Ambrosian authorship, and illuminating the expansion of popular hymns and learned Christian poetry in the early Latin church. Fr. Dunkle talked about his book in a video produced by BC Libraries.
