A rare and impressive printing of the works of 2nd-century theologian Clement of Alexandria. Clement was an important Greek philosopher and is regarded as a Catholic saint even though his philosophy heavily influenced Christianity and Anglicanism.

 

Clement is most often remembered for his three major works which are referred to as Clement’s Trilogy. ‘Protrepticus,’ ‘Paedagogus,’ and ‘Stromata’ primarily deal with aspects of Christian faith and his attempts to teach both believers and non-believers of Christian doctrine. He attempted to convert pagans to Christianity and sought to disprove the superstitions that were often associated with pagans. Other topics featured in the works of Clement include discussion of marriage, asceticism, martyrdom, proof of the existence of God, dangers of materialism and literary plagiarism, and much more!

 

This 1688 printing, printed in parallel Greek and Latin, features the commentary and edits of Friedrich Sylburg, who is known for his editions of Clement, Xenophon, and Justin Martyr.
