How Many Fragments of the Hypotyposes by Clement of Alexandria Do We Have?
Languages of publication
According to the testimony of Eusebius, Clement of Alexandria wrote, in addition to the Stromata, a collection of texts equal in size. These are the eight‑volume Hypotyposes, commenting on selected scriptural passages from both the Old and New Testaments. While the Stromata (with the exception of the eighth book) was preserved in its entirety, only fragments were preserved from the Hypotyposes. The aim of the present paper is threefold: (1) to summarise how many fragments of Clement’s lost writing Hypotyposes we have, paying close attention to those fragments which are not part of Stählin’s edition – namely, the fragment discovered by Di Benedetti and the fragments surviving in Arabic catenae; (2) to provide a critical evaluation of Riedinger’s hypothesis that certain texts by ps.‑Caesarius and Isidore of Pelusium contain 24 new fragments of Clement’s Hypotyposes; (3) and lastly, to present arguments for the hypothesis that the text preserved as Eclogae propheticae could have (together with fragments of the Hypotyposes) constituted Clement’s preparatory notes for a Biblical commentary.
