Overview

Origen was the greatest and most influential Christian theologian before Augustine, the founder of Biblical study as a serious discipline in the Christian tradition, and a figure with immense influence on the development of Christian spirituality. This book presents, for

the first time in English, a comprehensive and accessible insight into Origen's life and writings. It analyzes the principal influences that formed Origen as a Christian and as a thinker, his emergence as a mature theologian at Alexandria, his work in Caesarea and his controversial

legacy. Fresh translations of a representative selection of Origen's writings, including some never previously available in print, present the development of Origen's theological thought and argument.
