The paper highlights the importance of the Johannine writings, particularly the First Epistle of John, in Clement of Alexandria’s thinking. In the introduction, it asks whether Clement knew all three of John’s Epistles. It initially deals with Clement’s commentary on 1 and 2 John, which was part of his lost writing Hypotyposes, and whose Latin translation was carried out by Cassiodorus Senator in the 6th century. It consequently identifies 16 explicit citations in Clement’s other works (Paedagogus, Stromata and Quis dives salvetur?) and finally highlights the importance of certain verses (1:5; 2:15; 3:16; 4:8.16–18; 5:14) for the author’s concept of the Christian gnostic.
