This volume provides the first full-scale edition and commentary in English of the text known as 2 Clement since Lightfoot's magisterial work at the end of the 19th century. The volume contains a critical edition of the text in Greek, including a full critical apparatus based on all the surviving manuscripts, together with an English translation. A full introduction deals with issues of manuscript and other attestation, authorship, date, place etc., as well as discussing issues concerning the genre of the text, the identity of possible 'opponents', citations, as well as providing an overall summary of the theology of the text. The work also provides a full-scale detailed commentary on the Greek text, providing analysis of all the main issues arising from the text.
