(p.175) Conclusion
Ambrosiaster's Political Theology

Sophie Lunn-Rockliffe (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses the significance of the writings of Ambrosiaster. His writings present a rich repository of the theological, political, ecclesiastical, and social thought of a late Roman Christian. They provide a window into the preoccupations and intellectual horizons of a writer who influenced writers in his own time and throughout the Middle Ages. It is important to recognize and preserve the very intertwining of the political and theological when reading Ambrosiaster. His own analysis of the political was inspired by scripture, expressed in biblicizing language, and supported by lengthy quotations from the Bible.

Keywords:   scripture, political theology, late Roman Christian writers, Middle Ages
