Biography Clement of Alexandria
(ca. 150 - OK. 220)
Titus Flavius Clemens was born in a pagan family, possibly in Athens, and very early converted to Christianity. After long wanderings settled in Alexandria, where he taught in a so-called. Alexandria kateheticheskoy school. In an era of Clement and Origen, this city became a center of Christian philosophical thought. Clement left Alexandria during the persecution of Christians under the reign of the North (202-203), and his subsequent life and travels almost nothing is known. Pope Clement VIII ruled his name from the church calendar because of doubts about the orthodoxy of some of his writings
. Exceptional erudition Clement and his familiarity with a wide range of pagan and Christian sources are reflected in the principal of his surviving works - Protreptic, . or exhortations to the Greeks, .
