Inhaltsangabe: In the second and third centuries A.D. Alexandria was the meeting-point of three distinct cultural streams, namely the Jewish-Alexandrine philosophy, Platonism, and Gnosticism, all of which had an influence on Alexandrine orthodox Christianity. Starting from the assumption that the thought of a Christian Father like Clement of Alexandria cannot be fully understood without taking this influence into account, the author examines in detail Clement's close dependence on the Jewish-Alexandrine philosophy, Middle Platonism, Neoplatonism, and Gnosticism in such matters as his attitude towards Greek philosophy, ethics, his views on 'pistis' and 'gnosis' cosmology and theology. Particular attention has been paid to the Gnostic texts from Nag-Hammadi so far published.

Library stamps/marks/labels/pocket, otherwise light wear. Solid hardcover.; "The reason why the former studies on Clement's philosophcal sources have come to so contradictory conclusions is not very far to seek. Nobody has so far examined, in a comprehensive inquiry, the question of the relations between Clement and the dominant philosophy of the second century AD, namely Middle Platonism - what C Andresen has done for Justin has still to be done for Clement; very few scholars have realized the presence, in Clement's thought, of some ideas which are characteristic of Neoplatonism; and the Jewish-Alexandrine philosophy, which first produced a fruitful synthesis between Hellenism and Judaism, and which was to influence the Alexandrine Fathers so deeply, has not been taken into account, the only two exceptions being represented by the doctrines of the transcendent God and of the Logos." - Introduction.
