David Vopřada: Diues misericordiae diues est deo. What makes Christian rich according to Ambrose of Milan
The paper proposes an analysis of the connection between the term misericordia and wealth in Ambrose’s works. First, it is Christ rich in mercy that is the real Christian’s wealth. Second, it is Christian’s mercy that makes him rich before God. And there is also a way how Ambrose delivers this message to his public: the study would focus on the formative process in Ambrose's church of Milan.
