I have this resource. I'm not sure exactly what you are looking for but here are the first couple of paragraphs from the introduction. Does that help?



THE CIRCUMSTANCES of the life of St. Ambrose up to 374, when he became bishop of Milan, are well known. The date of his birth is usually given as either 333 or 340. His father was praefectus praetorio Galliarum, with headquarters at Trier. After her husband’s early death, the widowed mother brought her three children to Rome. There, Ambrose, the youngest of the children, attended the rhetorical schools in preparation for a public career. He attained the office of consul about 370, with two northern provinces under his control. His election as bishop of Milan on the death of the Arian bishop Auxentius followed a few years later. His affability, his sense of justice, and his accessibility endeared him to everyone, emperors and commoners alike. His days were spent in administrative work. Still, by diligent application he was able to advance in learning, like many a busy priest or professor today, as he prepared himself for his frequent public appearances.
In the intervening period between his advancement to the office of bishop and the delivery of the nine homilies on   p vi  The Six Days of Creation, probably during Holy Week in 387, Ambrose devoted himself to such preliminary studies as Paradise and Cain and Abel. The precise date of the sermons on creation is still a matter of dispute. Bardenhewer because of a reference in Hexameron (3.1.3) to a complete victory over Arianism, places the work in a period not before 389.

I think Ilian looks for a way to build milestones into another language edition of Ambrose. If you go beyond the introduction you should find something like a reference (instead of something unhelpful like pages), and could use this to copy it.

As an example from Calvin's Institutes, the reference could look like logosres:icrwjkc;ref=InstitutesOfTheChristianReligion.Institutes_I,_vi,_2  and having this, one can turn this from a resource reference into a datatype reference, and then use for milestones.

Yes!

Here is an example:

If you click on it, it copies the link. In this case it is: logosres:npnf24;ref=Ambrose.De_offic._1.1

It's done. I found out for myself by deriving it from other works...

...Ambrose.Hex._1.1.1

As a datatype reference it is <Ambrose Hex. 1.1.1> 

As a milestone it is {Milestone <Ambrose Hex. 1.1.1>}
