This is almost word for word the text in the article Epistles of Clement. I say that we move the couple of paragraphs here to that article and delete this one. Jhobson1 19:10, 12 September 2007 (UTC)
Consolidation has been completed. The contents of this page have been moved to Epistles of Clement and links have been changed. Silvanus42 21:25, 16 October 2007 (UTC)
In my opinion the merger was unfortunate. I will try to undo it, unless there are objections. /Pieter Kuiper (talk) 20:27, 8 August 2010 (UTC)
Allusions to Pauline epistles and strange footnote
A very odd thing in this article - the footnote to this statement "Clement also alludes to the epistles of Paul to the Romans, Galatians, Ephesians, Philippians and the first epistle to the Corinthians;" takes you straight to the editing page of the article! I wanted to see what source was cited for the statement as in Robert M. Price's book "The Amazing Colossal Apostle: The Search for the Historical Paul", he writes "Polycarp, Ignatius and 1 Clement can be shown to make allusions to the letters to the Corinthians. I remain unpersuaded by the attempts of Andreas Lindemann to secure other Pauline citations", page 102, with a footnote that cites Lindemann "Paul in the Writings of the Apostolic Fathers," in Babcock, Paul and Legacies, 25-43. So it seems that there is at least some doubt that it can be stated as fact that 1 Clement alludes to the other Pauline epistles other than Corinthians. I am changing the statement to "Clement also alludes to 1 Cor and may allude to the others.Smeat75 (talk) 03:09, 1 March 2013 (UTC)
Robert Price also holds a ton of bizarre positions that no one else holds. For example, the idea that Marcion wrote Galatians. Regardless, 1 Clement certainly demonstrates knowledge of 1 Cor, 2 Cor, and Romans. The rest is more difficult to say. Conservative scholars have tried to maximize the number of allusions (presumably for apologetic reasons), so it is good to be cautious. Whole Wheat Ιγνάτιος (talk) 00:12, 2 March 2013 (UTC)
