Abstract

[Excerpt] Despite the fact that many scholars still mistrust Eusebius’ account of Clement Alexandrinus leading a “catechetical school” (Hist. eccl. 5.10.4),¹ his own work nevertheless betrays a thorough knowledge of and concern for contemporary catechetical practices.² The writings of Clement, therefore, contain some of the earliest clear indicators that the catechumenate had developed into an institutional fact in the early church.³ Such a development entails that those participating in the catechumenate—both catechumens and instructors—inhabited recognized roles with their attendant status and responsibilities.
