Overview

During the second century, Clement of Alexandria—whose real name was Titus Flavius Clemens—taught Christian theology at the Catechetical School of Alexandria and was regarded as the best-educated authority on the works of other authors of his time and before. In this work, he uses not just numerous references and quotes from the Bible and other famous works, but also references to minor authors rarely seen elsewhere. Clement was heavily influenced by Hellenistic philosophy, in particular Plato and the Stoics. This collection includes extensive examination of pagan mythology, philosophical and ethical discussions of wealth, and discussion of the beliefs of Christian heretics.

This collection contains the complete texts in their Loeb Classical Library editions and includes the English translation alongside its original Greek text. Use Logos’ language tools to go deeper into the Greek text with linked definitions, synonyms, translations, and pronunciation tools for every Greek word. Quick and easy access to maps and charts, as well as definitions and lexical information, allows you to understand historical events like never before. Logos also helps you find etymological connections between English words and their ancient Greek counterparts. Automatic syncing between devices prevents you from spending time searching for where you left off.

About Clement of Alexandria

Clement of Alexandria (150–215) came from a pagan background in Athens, and his Christian theology was strongly influenced by Greek philosophy. Clement taught at the Catechetical school in Alexandria, Egypt, where he was succeeded by another great teacher, Origen of Alexandria.
