Polycarp’s Use of 1 Clement : an Assumption Reconsidered
Talbot School of Theology
Is Polycarp of Smyrna "particularly familiar" with 1 Clement? Does he have "Clement"'s letter in his "mind's eye" when he writes? Does he have it memorized? Is Polycarp's dependence upon 1 Clement greater than his dependence upon other literature he employs in his letter(s) to the Philippians (Polyc. Phil.)?
