Ambrose of Alexandria, A.D. 180-250, was of a noble and wealthy family. Meeting Origen he accepted Christianity
as taught by the magister orientis, and urged and stimulated his great teacher to write his many books, and used his
fortune to further them. Thus we owe generally, it is said, nearly all the exegetical works of Origen to Ambrose's
influence and money; and especially his commentary on St. John. It was at his request also that Origen composed his
greatest work, the answer to Celsus. He left no writings of his own except some letters, but his devotedness to
Origen, and his agency in promoting the publication of his works, should convince us that Origen's views are
substantially his own.9
