Clement of Rome  

Pope Clement I is listed by Irenaeus and Tertullian as Bishop of Rome, holding office from 88 to his death in 99.

He is considered to be the first Apostolic Father of the Church. Few details are known about Clement's life. Clement is known to have been a leading member of the church in Rome in the late 1st century. Early church lists place him as the second or third bishop of Rome after Saint Peter.

His letter, which is one of the oldest extant Christian documents outside of the New Testament, was read in church, along with other epistles, some of which later became part of the Christian canon.

According to tradition, Clement was imprisoned under the Emperor Trajan; during this time he is recorded to have led a ministry among fellow prisoners. Thereafter he was executed by being tied to an anchor and thrown into the sea.

The Church Fathers are ancient and generally influential Christian theologians, some of whom were eminent teachers and great bishops. The term is used of writers or teachers of the Church not necessarily ordained and not necessarily "saints".

The Apostolic Fathers were Christian theologians who lived within the first 100-years who are believed to have personally known some of the Twelve Apostles, or to have been significantly influenced by them. Their writings, though popular in Early Christianity, were ultimately not included in the final canon of the New Testament. Many of the writings derive from the same time period and geographical location as other works of early Christian literature that did come to be part of the New Testament, and some of the writings found among the Apostolic Fathers seem to have been just as highly regarded as some of the writings that became the New Testament.
