Re: Questions about Dating 1 Clement

One should note that Joseph Turmel's claim that Hermas was the brother of Pope Pius is mainly based on the Muratorian canon list. IF the modern scholars who date this list c 300 CE (rather than c 200 CE) are correct then its value as historical evidence for the authorship of Hermas would be much re...

Re: Why did the Gnostics use Paul and Gospels?
