Show Summary Details

Clement’s Logos-theology concerns the function, status, and role of the Son in relation to the Father. On the one hand, it emphasizes the Son’s peculiar or paradoxical position as being distinct from the One as the knowable One-Many; and united with the One, on the other. Questions related to his pre-existence, generation, and divinity are also discussed.
