Aurélio Ambrósio , mais conhecido como Ambrósio, foi um arcebispo de Mediolano que se tornou um dos mais influentes membros do clero no século IV. Ele era prefeito consular da Ligúria e Emília, cuja capital era Mediolano, antes de tornar-se bispo da cidade por aclamação popular em 374. Ambrósio era um fervoroso adversário do arianismo.

Tradicionalmente atribui-se a Ambrósio a promoção do canto antifonal, um estilo no qual um lado do coro responde de forma alternada ao canto do outro, e também a composição do Veni redemptor gentium, um hino natalino.

Ambrósio é um dos quatro doutores da Igreja originais e é notável por sua influência sobre o pensamento de Santo Agostinho.

„Formerly a lamb was offered, a calf was offered. Christ is offered today... and he offers himself as priest in order that he may remit our sins: here in image, there in truth where, as our advocate, he intercedes for us before the Father.“
