Abstract :
Observes that although early sources state that pope Clement I was martyred (late 1st c.) in Hersones (Ukraine), there is no archaeological evidence demonstrating the existence of Christianity in this area before the late 4th c. Surveys 4th-7th-c. Christian archaeological finds (e.g., religious architecture, sepulchral monuments, mural painting, mosaics, etc.), finding that there is no material evidence of the celebration of S. Clement's cult at least through the 7th c., although written sources mention its existence by the 6th c. Points out, however, that the original dedications of the Early Christian and 6th-7th-c. Byzantine churches in the area are unknown, and that thus all titles proposed in recent times for these churches are provisional. Concludes that the archaeological eveidence neither proves nor disproves the existence of Clement's cult in Hersones. ;
