Second Clement suffers from a lack of clarity about its historical and literary contexts. The anonymous text’s date and provenance have defied precise determination and, although it is referred to a few times in the history of tradition, it seems not to be cited at all. Moreover, its first two verses maintain a history of translation into modern languages employing expressions long out of date.
