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

Early Church Fathers  Index     

Chapter XVIII.—Mistake About Simon Magus.

“Since, then, as I said, some men do not know the rule of combination, thence they do not know who is my precursor Simon.  For if he were known, he would not be believed; but now, not being known, he is improperly believed; and though his deeds are those of a hater, he is loved; and though an enemy, he is received as a friend; and though he be death, he is desired as a saviour; and though fire, he is esteemed as light; and though a deceiver, he is believed as a speaker of truth.”

Then I Clement, when I heard this, said, “Who then, I pray you, is this who is such a deceiver?  I should like to be informed.”  Then said Peter:  “If you wish to learn, it is in your power to know it from those from whom I also got accurate information on all points respecting him.
