At the transition from pagan antiquity to Christian late antiquity, Ambrose of Milan attempts to make the challenge of dealing with death fruitful for the growing realm of Christianity. By presenting the shape and function of a »theology of consolation,« Florian Durner contributes to an understanding of the fusion of pagan philosophy, rhetoric, and Christian theology.
