Themes and Perspectives
Ambrose seeks to justify his use of key terms from middle Stoic philosophy by finding them in the Bible. He frequently insists that biblical morals and exemplars are superior to classical ones, and accuses pagans of stealing their best ideas from the Scriptures. He usually avoids mentioning Cicero or classical thinkers by name.
