This chapter explores Ambrosiaster's ideas about kingship and emperorship (interchangeable in his usage). His ideas drew together themes from his cosmology, anthropology, and ecclesiology. He insisted that God's singularity was reflected in the creation of a single man, and in the existence of kings and bishops. A recurring feature of his writing on kings, often scriptural kings, is that they had the ‘image of God’.
