In the twelfth year of the same reign Clement succeeded Anencletus 704 after the latter had been bishop of the church of Rome for twelve years. The apostle in his Epistle to the Philippians informs us that this Clement was his fellow-worker. His words are as follows: 705 “With Clement and the rest of my fellow-laborers whose names are in the book of life.”
Phil. iv. 3. For an account of Clement, see above, chap. 4, note 19; and upon the order of succession of the Roman bishops, see chap. 2, note 1.
