A description of the experience
Clement of Alexandria - Paidagogos
Many things are spoken in enigmas, many in parables. . . . However, it does not behoove me to teach about these things further, says the Instructor (παιδαγωγός). But we need a Teacher (διδασκάλου) for the interpretation of those sacred words, to whom we must direct our steps. And now, in truth, it is time for me to cease from my pedagogy (παιδαγωγίας), and for you to listen to the Teacher (διδασκάλου).
