ABSTRACT:

Clement of Alexandria is one of the most iconic intellectuals of primitive Christianity. His attitude towards Classical Greek culture had a decisive role in its acceptance as an appropriate instrument for the interpretation of biblical revelation. In the context of the present article, we follow the Clementine account of the Orphic texts, an interpretation distinguished by its manner of tackling the issue. This meant not only that he ignored the context in which the “Orphic tradition” developed, but also that he set aside the immanent quality of Greek culture. Clement’s approach would have a deep impact on the way in which Late Antiquity Christianity would understand divine nature and the limits of the act of faith.
