Nicene and Ante-Nicene Fathers, Ser. II, Vol I:
The Church History of Eusebius.: Chapter XV

Early Church Fathers  Index     

Chapter XV.—Clement, the Third Bishop of Rome.

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.”
