Abstract(s)
This article analyses Clement of Alexandria's treatment of authorities in his treatise on marriage (Strom. II, 23, 137, 1 – III, 18, 110, 3). It shows that Clement widely quotes not only biblical authorities, but also classical authors; in his practical theology he puts great emphasis primarily on Paul the Apostle, Plato, and Aristotle. The article includes an overview of all of the sources (direct quotes, paraphrases, allusions) that Clement uses in his interpretation and also presents the treatise as a significant source of a large amount of fragments of both classical and early Christian literature.
