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 lifestyles as a pillar of the Western institution, Chrysostom, the outspoken idealist, died in exile. even though, their perspectives and beliefs have been remarakably related: either bishops have been excited about the social function of the Church, either have been made up our minds rivals of what they known as the Arian heresy, and every attracted a devoted following between his city congregation. This similarity, Liebeschuetz argues, was once due to not the impression of 1 at the different, yet used to be a outcome in their participation in a Christian tradition which spanned the divide among the japanese (later Byzantine) and Western elements of the Roman Empire. The monastic stream figures in the course of the publication as a huge impact on either males and as maybe the main dynamic improvement within the Christian tradition of the fourth century.
