This work examines the ways in which the early Christian author, Clement of Alexandria, was able to creatively synthesize disparate Biblical, Hellenistic Jewish, Platonic and Stoic understandings of the concept of divine providence. After an initial look at Clement's socio-historical environment, the study focuses on specific conceptual development of providence [[pi][rho]o[nu]o[iota][alpha]] and how this term was utilized and understood in its respective milieux.
