The Sacred Writings of Pseudo-Clementine Literature

The name „Pseudo-Clementine Literature“ (or, more briefly, „Clementina“ ) is applied to a series of writings, closely resembling each other, purporting to emanate from the great Roman Father. But, as Dr. Schaff remarks, in this literature he is evidently confounded with „Flavius Clement, kinsman of the Emperor Domitian.“ These writings are two in number: (1) the Recognitions, of which only the Latin translation of Rufinus has been preserved; (2) the Homilies, twenty in number, of which a complete collection has been known since 1853. Other writings may be classed with these; but they are of the same general character, except that most of them show the influence of a later age, adapting the material more closely to the orthodox doctrine.
