Abstract (Summary)

Ever since an influential study conducted by Pio Franchi de' Cavalieri in the early twentieth century, the Greek Martyrdom of Clement text has been acknowledged as a translation of the original Latin Passio Sancti Clementis text. Yet despite this discovery, very little work has been done to advance the frontier of knowledge on the Latin text itself over the last one hundred years. This work seeks to correct this oversight.

This work revisits the last Latin critical edition of the Passio text published by F. Diekamp in 1913, two years prior to Cavalieri's study. Given Diekamp's preferential treatment to the Greek Martyrdom as the original, this paper collates additional manuscript witnesses against Diekamp's Passio text, offers some conjectural textual emendations, postulates a stemma diagram of the Latin tradition, and provides an English translation to the improved text.
