St. Ambrose

In this painting we see St. Ambrose.  Ambrose was Bishop of Milan in the Fourth Century (from 374 to 397).  He is remembered as a great Christian theologian and one of the most influential and significant figures of the church in the 4th century.

    In this painting, the artist has chosen to portray one particular event in St Ambrose’s life. Ambrose is shown refusing the Emperor Theodosius entry to the basilica church in Milan on Easter Day because Theodosius had been responsible for the massacre of 7000 people in Thessalonica.  (This was in the year 390).
