Ante-Nicene Fathers, Vol VIII:
Pseudo-Clementine Literature.: Chapter XXVIII

Early Church Fathers  Index     

Chapter XXVIII.—Account of the Creation Continued.

“After this He adorns that visible heaven with stars.  He places in it also the sun and the moon, that the day might enjoy the light of the one, the night that of the other; and that at the same time they might be for an indication of things past, present, and future.  For they were made for signs of seasons and of days, which, although they are seen indeed by all, are understood only by the learned and intelligent.  And when, after this, He had ordered living creatures to be produced from the earth and the waters, He made Paradise, which also He named a place of delights.  But after all these things He made man, on whose account He had prepared all things, whose internal species 548 is older, and for whose sake all things that are were made, given up to his service, and assigned to the uses of his habitation.”



That is, his soul, according to the doctrine of the pre-existence of souls.
