Il posto di Ambrogio di Milano tra i misericordes nostri
Ebook in formato Pdf leggibile su questi device:
In the history of dogma, Ambrose of Milan is considered one of the misericordes Fathers of the Church, on the basis of his views on men’s afterlife. His spiritual doctrine, however, is grounded on the very idea of misericordia and his reflections are rooted in Ambrose’s political experience. The most fruitful element of his views comes from the dialectical and synthetic relationship between iudicium (iustitia) and misericordia. The link with God’s plan in regard to the creation offers a key to understand the point. Misericordia allows to detect a feature of divine love that men cannot perceive within the Holy Trinity: a descending relationship towards the limit. Misericordia is not a mere pathos, but a constitutive element of justice, which operates within the limit: for this reason, Ambrose maintains that misericordia is necessary for man to build human society, not only to gain a place in heaven. Finally, misericordia is an active communitarian virtue, typically ecclesiastical.
