Sample text

A similar view was formulated earlier by Richard B. ; London: Williams and Norgate, 1914), 1:14: “the fact that Clement chose to write a series of Stromateis in the place of the projected ‘Master’ must in the main be “the other clement” and angelomorphic pneumatology 17 was prepared to communicate is found in the Stromateis, and there is obviously no room for any consideration of the Hypotyposeis. Even more interesting is the case of Osborn, one of the undisputed authorities in the field, whose two monographs preface and bring to a close half a century’s worth of research on the Alexandrian.

Cf. ” 40 Paed. 97. “the other clement” and angelomorphic pneumatology 13 Clement describes three stages: exhortation (which leads to baptism), continued by ethical training, and subsequent doctrinal instruction. The text of the Paidagogos is presented as a continuation of the Protreptikos, and explicitly mentions “listening to the didaskalos” as the next stage in the curriculum. But does this necessarily refer to written work? This question was raised forcefully by Friedrich Quatember, who noted that Clement actually speaks of the divine Logos as exhorting, then training, finally teaching, and not about a human teacher.

He characterizes the Stromateis as a parenthesis between Paidagogos and Didaskalos, a protracted introduction to the latter, designed to justify his intended use of philosophy in the Didaskalos, and to provide a higher level of ethics, more suitable to advanced students than that of the Paidagogos. Although Clement had initially set out to write a single volume (Strom. 1), the Stromateis soon grew out of proportion, turning into an amorphous body because of the writer’s inability to channel the flow of his ideas according to a definite plan (De Faye, Clément d’Alexandrie, 106, 108, 113–14).
