ALTERCATIO CONTRA EOS

ALTERCATIO CONTRA EOS. The complete title of this mutilated text, published by Caspari in 1883, is Altercatio S. Ambrosii contra eos qui animam non confitentur. In three MSS it is attributed to St. Ambrose of Milan, but a judgment regarding this attribution is not easy, given the nature of the text. The argument of this brief treatise is the same as that of the Dialogus sub nomine Hieronomi on the origin of the human soul, but is significantly inferior in both content and depth. The Altercatio is in fact only a brief diatribe, interspersed with biblical citations, against those who think differently on the question. CPL 170; CPPM II,A, n. 52; PLS 1,611-613. P.
