Clement of Rome wrote his First Epistle to the Corinthians around 96AD - interesting to compare the situation he writes to with Paul's letters. Clement seems to be addressing a problem with people attacking the eldership. Noel Due, commenting on the Epistle says 'In all of this there is an implicit assumption that the correction of church structures will go a good way to dealing with the pastoral problems'.
