    This chapter examines the views of Clement of Alexandria, who had a similar theological approach to Origen. Clement was an uncompromising opponent of the Hellenistic religion of the heavens, particularly in his Protreptikos, which is addressed to pagans. In this, he attacked Alcmaeon of Croton for believing that the stars are gods and alive, and Xenocrates for suggesting that the planets are.   Norman Geiser’s masterful work, Christian Apologetics, is a very thorough textbook that builds a strong epistemological foundation before even addressing Christian r’s initial goal is to establish an adequate test for truth, and from there to show that the Christian .

    Christianity - Christianity - Scriptural traditions: The most important creation of church tradition is that of the Holy Scriptures themselves and, secondarily, their exegesis (critical interpretations and explanations). Exegesis first appeared in Christian circles among gnostics and the church catechists (teachers)—e.g., in the Christian school systems, such as in Alexandria and Antioch.

      Clement remained in Alexandria, and when his teacher died Clement took his place as the main Christian instructor in Alexandria. In AD, when Septimius Severus was emperor, persecution broke out, and Clement had to leave the city. The story of the birth of the Buddha was also known: a fragment of Archelaos of Carrha ( AD) mentions the Buddha's virgin-birth, and Saint Jerome (4th century) mentions the birth of the Buddha, who he says "was born from the side of a virgin". Queen Maya came to bear the Buddha after receiving a prophetic dream in which she foresaw the descent of the Bodhisattva (Buddha-to-be) from the.

Titus Flavius Clemens, also known as Clement of Alexandria (Greek: Κλήμης ὁ Ἀλεξανδρεύς; c. – c. ), was a Christian theologian and philosopher who taught at the Catechetical School of Alexandria.A convert to Christianity, he was an educated man who was familiar with classical Greek philosophy and his three major works demonstrate, Clement was Era: Ancient philosophy, Patristic Period.

Some scholars believe that there exist significant Buddhist influences on Christianity reaching back to Christianity's earliest days. Buddhism was known in the pre-Christian Greek world, and hence the later Roman Empire, through the campaigns of Alexander the Great (see Greco-Buddhism and Greco-Buddhist monasticism).Several prominent early Christian fathers (Clement of Alexandria and St.

Maybe a book to add to my list 🙂 Any book that has a review that includes lines like “[Bart D. Ehrman] has never done the necessary laboring in the scholarly vineyard to be in a position to write a book like Jesus, Interrupted”and ” but even in this realm he does not represent what might be called a majority view on such matters”Attacking the person – nice logical fallacy.

Clement, however, clearly admits in Christ a real body, but he thought this body exempt from the common needs of life, as eating and drinking, and the soul of Christ exempt from the movement of the passions, of joy, and of sadness.

Editions. The works of Clement of Alexandria were first edited by P. Victorius (Florence, ). Clement was a late second-century thinker who set himself the task of clarifying the church’s understanding of wealth.

Parts of the early church treated it as canonical. In Codex Alexandrinus it appears, together with 2 Clement, directly after the Book of Revelation, and in a Syriac manuscript both writings appear before the Apocalypse. Clement of Alexandria quoted the letter as a canonical text. The first part of this chapter deals with the social, cultural, and religious aspects of the city of Alexandria around AD.

The second part discusses the origins of the Christian Church in Alexandria, including the catechetical school. The third part traces what is known of Clement’s life, works, and audience. Clement of Alexandria taught against the false so called gnostics.

The gnosis he spoke in favor of was Christian like that spoken of by Saint Paul. It's possible some of his theological opinons were not accepted by the Church but I don't think that alone would be evidence that he wasn't a saint.The chapter dedicated to Clement of Alexandria offers an insightful discussion of the motifs that ruled and stimulated Clement’s creative way of reading and commenting on the Scriptures.
