Saint Ambrose—Hexameron, Paradise, and Cain and Abel

Special!
   
Translated by John J. Savage

Volume 42 of The Fathers of the Church: A New Translation

“For the homilies on creation Ambrose is much indebted to the celebrated work on the same subject by his Greek contemporary, St. Basil, who also rose to the office of bishop. [...]The homily Paradise is an early work of St. Ambrose[..., who...]seems to emphasize[...]that Paradise should not be regarded as a place, but as an aspect of the higher part of our nature. [...]St. Ambrose seems to have planned Cain and Abel as a continuation of Paradise.”
