  • Wolfram Kinzig

Extract

(i.e. pseudo-Ambrose), the author of the Commentary on Thirteen Pauline Letters (except Hebrews) handed down under the name of *Ambrose. Attempts at identifying the author have not yet yielded conclusive results. The commentary was written under Pope *Damasus (ce 366–84) in Rome and is regarded as an important witness to the Latin text of St *Paul prior to the *Vulgate and as an instructive example for the pre-Augustinian interpretation of Paul. The pseudo-Augustinian Quaestiones Veteris et Novi Testamenti probably also come from his pen. In addition, some minor texts have been attributed to this author.
