Ambrose of Milan, Aurelius Ambrosius, or St. Ambrose, born in Trier circa 340 and died on April 4th, 397, was the Milan Bishop from 374 to 397. Doctor of the Church, it was one of the four fathers of the Western Church, with St. Augustine, Jérôme of Stridon and St. Gregory the Great.
He is known as a writer and poet, almost founder of the Latin Christian hymnody and reader of Cicero and of the Greek fathers, from whom he drew his inspiration regarding the allegorical methods of interpretation.
He was also one of the protagonists of the debates against Arianism. At his side, Augustine of Hippo converted to Christianity (saint Augustine).
He is honoured as a saint by the Orthodox and the Catholic Churches and is nowadays celebrated on December 7th, celebration of the translation of his relics.
