    Overview

    Aims and Scope

    The volume contains the oldest and most comprehensive form of the Greek biography of St. Clement, Bishop of Rome and successor to St. Peter. It was put together by an unknown author, perhaps as early as the fifth century, certainly before the tenth, and was used as a reading by the Greek Church on the saint’s feast-day. Apart from its significance for the history of religion and language history, it is of particular interest to literary scholars.
