Hist 100

As Christianity has been taking face in the third century, as a  new religion it faced persecution in the second and third century. Many  of the Christians ancestors defended Christian faith again the hatred  that was launched again them and their religion and one of these  ancestors was Clement of Alexandria. Many efforts were put into  defending Christianity and today it is the Christian philosophy has set  so many precedents for future believers.

Clement of Alexandria fused the two only for one reason  and that reason was to be able to explain or present Christianity to  someone without any problems. Once Christianity would take on its  popularity, I believe Clement would drift away from philosophical views that were once presented in Christianity.
