You Asked For It, St. Ambrose

I was wandering around Athens when I found this book in the gutter, an antiquarian edition of the biography of St. Ambrose, written in English. St. Ambrose was the Bishop of Milan in the 4th century. Highly influential, he was a strong advocate for celibacy, which is an attitude that has prevailed, placing women on a low rung, not just because acknowledging one's sexuality as a female or other gender was highly criticised, but because procreation depended on intercourse. This piece empowers female and female identifying sexuality.
