« Prev Clement of Alexandria Next »


(A.D. 170-220).

This is probably the oldest hymn in the volume, as Titus Flavius Clement, the Presbyter and illustrious head of the Catechetical School at Alexandria, flourished towards the end of the second and the beginning of the third century. I bad completed my translation of this celebrated hymn, before I was aware that it had been translated by Dr. W. L. Alexander.3333See Writings of Clement of Alexandria vol. i. pp. 341-345, Antenicene Christian Library.

In my translation I have followed the arrangement of the learned editors of the Anthologia Graeca, beginning with what in other editions stands as the ninth line.
