What are the most striking disagreements (if any) between Clement of Alexandria and Irenaeus?

The unanimity of the early Church Fathers is something that is often presented as an indisputable fact. However, while they were all in agreement about some major points of faith, there might have been some disagreements on some minor things. So, the question is about that.

  • @MartinRosenau - One question is about the second century, the other one is about the third. – brilliant Sep 23 '18 at 22:03
  • This is too broad - why not read a church history book on the period? Or you could edit it to ask specifically about two individuals. – curiousdannii Sep 24 '18 at 1:00
  • @curiousdannii - Thank you for your advice. I didn't know it was too broad. I thought that reducing the time period to only one century would have made it narrow enough. I don't really know which two individuals to choose. I chose the first two names from the wiki page on Church fathers: Athanasius of Alexandria and Basil the Great (and will make the appropriate edits to incorporate these two names into my question). Do you think it's a good choice? – brilliant Sep 24 '18 at 1:40

    You realize that Athanasius and Basil are from the 4th century, right? – Nathaniel is protesting Sep 24 '18 at 1:59
