The [[First Epistle of Clement|letter ]] sent in about the year 96 to the Church of Corinth in the name of the [[Church of Rome]] has been attributed to Clement. The letter was sent in an attempt to restore peace and unity in the Corinthian church, where apparently a few violent people had revolted against the leadership of the [[church]] community.
A second letter to the Corinthians had also been attributed to Clement based upon its inclusion in a Greek manuscript that included Clement’s first letter, with the title of “Second Epistle of Clement to the Corinthians.” But, when a missing ending to the “letter” was found, it proved to be a [[homily]] of unknown authorship.
