Ambrose and John Chrysostom: Clerics between Desert and by J. H. W. G. Liebeschuetz

By J. H. W. G. Liebeschuetz

J. H. W. G. Liebeschuetz compares the personalities and the respective careers of 2 of the best of the early Christian Fathers, Ambrose and John Chrysostom. whereas the statesmanlike Ambrose ended his existence as a pillar of the Western institution, Chrysostom, the outspoken idealist, died in exile. in spite of the fact that, their perspectives and beliefs have been remarakably comparable: either bishops have been serious about the social position of the Church, either have been made up our minds rivals of what they referred to as the Arian heresy, and every attracted a committed following between his city congregation. This similarity, Liebeschuetz argues, was once due to not the impact of 1 at the different, yet was once a outcome in their participation in a Christian tradition which spanned the divide among the jap (later Byzantine) and Western components of the Roman Empire. The monastic circulation figures through the publication as an immense effect on either males and as probably the main dynamic improvement within the Christian tradition of the fourth century.
