Summary note:
This work offers a critical overview of the hymns of Ambrose of Milan (c.339-397) in the context of 4th century doctrinal hymns and in relation to his own catechetical preaching. Brian P. Dunkle argues that Ambrose employed sophisticated poetic techniques in his hymns in order to foster a pro-Nicene sensitivity in his congregation.
