Oxoniae (Oxford), E Theatro Sheldoniano, 1677, 2nd ed., (22),125,(9); 25,(67) pag., contemporary vellum, duodecimo.= Clement I, considered the first Apostolic Father of the Catholic Church, was pope during the first century AD and known for his epistles to the church at Corinth. This letter is perhaps the earliest Christian document written after the New Testament. Much like the letter Saint Paul wrote to the Corinthians, Clement I called for immediate repentance and an obedience to church authority. It offers an insight to what the early Christian church valued and how it was affected by the Roman Church. This letter is also one of the earliest works to make a clear distinguishing between bishops, presbyters, and deacons. Also contains the second epistle of Clement, however this sermon was not written by Clement. Scholars believe that this homily was not written until the second century. Printed in Greek and Latin on parallel pages. A rare issue of the works (the first edition 1669), revised by John Fell (1625-1686), Bishop of Oxford. Fell was a prominent theologian and translator and was instrumental in the building of Wren's Sheldonian Theatre, where he placed the Oxford University Press, hence the publication imprint of the Sheldonian.Provenance: with the neat owner's name in pen and ink "R.V. van Goens" on title-page, presumably Rijcklof Volckertsz. van Goens (1619-1682), who made a swift career in the Dutch East India Company, the Vereenigde Oostindische Compagnie.
