Notes

1 This translation, based on Ambrose, De virginitate 388/90, ed. Egnatius Cazzaniga, Corpus Scriptorum Latinorum Paravianum (Turin: In Aedibus Io. Bapt. Paraviæ et Sociorum, 1954) is a revision of one which was reprinted by Peregrina Publishing Co. in 1987: On Virginity, by Ambrose Bishop of Milan, Peregrina Translations series 7 (1980; rpt. Toronto: Peregrina Publishing Co., 1987)

2Sections 14-23, and the first few words of section 24 are an interpolation.

3This does not fit with Mark’s narrative: cf. Mk 16:9.
