Chapter Summary

This introductory chapter presents an overview of the second part of this book. If we have no direct access to the thought of the elders, it is nevertheless possible to gain some insight into their teachings by considering early Christian writings that Clement of Alexandria would have read and regarded as authoritative. To prove the authors overall thesis concerning the tradition of angelomorphic pneumatology in early Christianity, and provide some insight into the pneumatological traditions inherited and reworked by Clement of Alexandria, the part discusses the Book of Revelation, the Shepherd of Hermas, Justin Martyrs Apologies and Dialogue, and the Demonstrations of Aphrahat the Persian Sage.

Keywords: angelomorphic pneumatology; Clement of Alexandria; early Christianity
