Clement of Alexandria was a Christian author writing in the late second and early third centuries AD. Like Tertullian, he is regarded as a Church Father rather than a saint by most denominations today. Clement’s extant writings reveal an educated, widely-read mind (again, like Tertullian) that was familiar with both Christian scholarship and the major pagan philosophic creeds.

Delightful for its insights and for being so very out of date. The first general Christian treatise on the moral life, designed for those who live in a rich, cosmopolitan Mediterranean city and thus rather relevant to contemporary America. Good general theological reflections, fascinating insight into how Scripture was understood in second-century Christianity, and amusing glimpses of what everyday life was like in Alexandria.

Вот так примерно выглядит добротный синтез идей античной философии и христианства. Две традиции соединяются. С одной стороны Сократ, Платон, с другой Исаия и апостол Павел. Что же поучится в итоге? Получится западная европейская культура, коей Климент один из самых ранних предвестников.

Педагог это книга о том, как жить христианам, чтобы слышать и слушаться Логоса (Христа) и спасаться.
Первый том о богословии. Второй и третий - о вещах прикладных. Вот, например, названия их глав: "Правила относит

Pretty good.

If you cannot get a hold of this collection, read Ecclesiasticus, he heavily depends on that book of the Bible... but certainly this is more than a commentary on that book.

Neither Clement's birthdate or birthplace is known with any degree of certainty. It is conjectured that he was born in around 150. According to Epiphanius Scholasticus, he was born in Athens, but there is also a tradition of an Alexandrian birth.

His parents were pagans, and Clement was a convert to Christianity. In the Protrepticus he displays an extensive knowledge of Greek mythology and mystery
