Steeped in Greek Christian writings, Ambrose, Bishop of Milan in the fourth century, is known for (among other achievements) his allegorical exegesis of the Old Testament. This volume offers English translations of Ambrose’s interpretations of three stories in the Old Testament: of the six days of creation, of the Fall (Adam and Eve’s loss of Paradise), and of the brothers Cain and Abel. From these stories are drawn lessons on morality and God’s will for humankind.
