Titus Flavius Clemens Alexandrinus (ca A.D. 150-215) wrote the Stromateis, possibly the third work in his trilogy - the Protrepticus, the Paedagogus, and the Stromateis - to direct Christian Gnostics toward the third stage of philosophy - gnosis. For Clement the only true gnosis was that which presupposed the faith of the Church, that is, apostolic and divinely revealed. But for Clement the ideas of Greek philosophy were also a divine gift to mankind. All of his writings reflect this reconciliation of faith and knowledge.
