Homilies on Genesis and Exodus by Origen( )

15 editions published between 1982 and 2010 in English and held by 2,495 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Homilies on Leviticus : 1-16 by Origen( )

Homilies on Luke ; Fragments on Luke by Origen( )

15 editions published between 1996 and 2009 in English and held by 2,332 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Thirty-nine of Origen's homilies on the Gospel of Luke survive in Jerome's Latin translation. Origen preached them in Caesarea, perhaps around 234 or 240, to a congregation of catechumens and faithful. Most of the homilies are short; on average, they treat about six verses of the Gospel and would have lasted between eight and twelve minutes. The first thirty-three homilies treat chapters one through four of Luke's Gospel; the remaining six treat passages from the tenth to the twentieth chapters
Homilies on Jeremiah : Homily on 1 Kings 28 by Origen( )

12 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 2,320 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Presented in this volume are the remains of twenty-two homilies and a collection of fragments delivered by Origen around A.D. 240. The original texts of the homilies on Jeremiah have not come down to us completely; two of the homilies survive only in a Latin translation of St. Jerome. The homily on 1 Kings 28, while not a part of the homilies on Jeremiah, deals with the Witch of Endor and has been added to this volume in virtue of its own inherent interest

Homilies on Judges by Origen( )

11 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 1,936 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In his General Audience of May 2, 2007, Pope Benedict XVI praised Origen for his "primordial role" in the history of lectio divina, the prayerful reading of Scripture. He explained that Origen approaches Scripture reading not as mere study but as the pathway to knowing Christ and "falling in love with him." Origen's nine extant homilies on Judges exemplify this approach." "In them, Origen calls his audience to participate in a loving relationship with Christ through interaction with Scripture. Delivered sometime between 238 and 248, these homilies expound on themes extracted from Judges 2-7. Some of the homilies focus generally on God's redemption of Israel through judges after each cycle of sin, enslavement, and repentance, while others stress that victory belongs to God alone through events such as the defeat of the Midianites by Gideon's meager army of 300 men, Gideon's test with the fleece, and the murder of the Philistine general Sisera by the woman Jael. The homilies brim with hope in Christ's ultimate victory over sin and death, a hope that is specific to the individual believer but accessible only within the Church." "Origen applies his allegorical method or Scriptural interpretation to these passages, sometimes drawing faith-enriching meaning' from the literal (somatic) sense as well as from one or both of the two figurative (psychic and pneumatic) senses. Using both allegory and typology, Origen shows his audience God's abundant mercy and grace, the power of Scripture to assist in the battle against sin and in the promotion of virtue, and the church leader's duty to walk his flock through the transforming terrain of Scripture toward likeness to and union with Christ." "Largely because of early controversies over Origen's legacy, these homilies are extant only in Rufinus's fourth-century Latin translation, but his ability to capture Origen's meaning and spirit is well documented. This is the first-ever English translation of Origen's homilies on Judges." --Book Jacket
Commentary on the Epistle to the Romans by Origen( )

15 editions published between 2001 and 2010 in English and held by 1,871 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Origen of Alexandria's Commentary on the Epistle to the Romans is the oldest extant commentary on Romans (ca. 246). This volume presents the first English translation of the Commentary, covering his exegesis of Rom 1:1 to 6:11. One of his longest and most mature works, it is the only commentary of Origen available in a coherent form from beginning to end. The work was originally composed in Greek in Caesarea, but only fragments of the archetype have survived. Fortunately, Origen's admirer Rufinus of Aquileia translated the work into Latin (ca. 406)." "Origen's exegesis predates the controversy between Augustine and Pelagius by 170 years; thus it offers a striking perspective on Romans. Opposition to Gnostic interpretations of Paul is an important characteristic of the Commentary. Above all Origen defends the Church against the "doctrine of natures" - the belief that all human beings are born with unalterable natures, either good or evil, and thus bound for either salvation or damnation, and that their conduct during this life cannot alter their destiny. Origen successfully refutes this teaching, showing that freedom of will always abides in rational beings."--BOOK JACKET
Homilies on Joshua by Origen( )

14 editions published between 1900 and 2010 in English and held by 1,858 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"With this publication, English readers now have available to them the complete homilies of Origen of Alexandria on the book of Joshua. These homilies were among the last Origen gave before his torture and death during the Decian persecution, around 254"--Jacket
Commentary on the Epistle to the Romans by Origen( )

13 editions published between 2002 and 2012 in English and held by 1,843 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume completes the first English translation of Rufinus's Latin version of Origen of Alexandria's Commentary on the Epistle to the Romans and contains Origen's detailed exegesis of Romans 6:12-16:27." "In Books 6-10 Origen carries through to completion his program, begun in Books 1-5, of defending human freedom and of opposing the natural predestinarian doctrine of the sects founded by the Gnostic heretics Marcion, Valentinus, and Basilides. These schools relied heavily on texts from Paul, interpreted in isolation from the rest of Scripture, not only to deny free will but to support the doctrine that salvation is determined by the nature one receives at birth, whether good or evil. In contrast Origen clarifies passages in Romans by citations from Paul's other letters, from the Gospels, and from the Old Testament. He attempts to construct a coherent and unified "biblical theology." Origen views human beings as chosen or rejected by God deservedly; everyone has it within his own power whether he becomes a servant of God or of sin, a vessel of wrath or of mercy." "Readers will find interesting and thought-provoking discussions of all the important theological themes and terms of Romans: faith, hope, love, works, justification, election, law, Israel, Gentiles, Church, sin, death, flesh, body, glory, etc."--Jacket
Origen, An Exhortation to martyrdom : Prayer, First principles: book IV, Prologue to the Commentary on the Song of Songs, Homily XXVII on numbers by Origen( Book )

8 editions published in 1979 in English and held by 965 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Origen's life spanned the turbulent years during the collapse of the Roman Empire. He sought to rescue and transform what was best of the Roman world and to translate the Christian spiritual quest into a language intelligible to the thoughtful and educated non-believer of his day. The collected works in this volume represent the heart of Origen's spiritual vision
Contra Celsum by Origen( Book )

57 editions published between 1605 and 2013 in 5 languages and held by 922 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Few works of the early Church are as interesting to the modern reader or as important to the historian as Origen's reply to the attack on Christianity made by the pagan Celsus. The Contra Celsum is the culmination of the great apologetic movement of the second and third centuries AD, and is for the Greek Church what St Augustine's City of God is for Western Christendom. It is also one of the chief monuments of the coming together of ancient Greek culture and the new faith of the expanding Christian society. Thus Origen's work is of interest not only to the historian and theologian, but also to the hellenist. Professor Chadwick's English translation is preceded by a substantial introduction which includes discussion on Celsus' date, identity and theological outlook, as well as an account of Origen's philosophical background and method. The notes elucidate the many obscure allusions of a difficult text

Aufforderung zum Martyrium by Origen( )

7 editions published between 1974 and 2010 in German and held by 554 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mit seiner Schrift richtete Origenes anlässlich der Christenverfolgung des Jahres 235 unter Kaiser Maximinus Thrax einen eindringlichen Appell an seine Freunde Ambrosius und Protoktetus, standhaft am christlichen Glauben festzuhalten. Mit der Wahl der literarischen Gattung des Protreptikos knüpft Origenes an die seit der Sophistik übliche Tradition an, mit der für die Hinwendung zur Philosophie geworben wurde, und dokumentiert damit - wie schon Klemens von Alexandrien vor ihm -, dass die von den gebildeten Gegnern geschmähte christliche Religion an die Stelle der Philosophie tritt. Inhaltlich orientiert sich Origenes, der bedeutendste Bibeltheologe der frühen Kirche, an den martyriumsrelevanten Aussagen des Alten Testament und des Neuen Testament, mit denen er seine Aufforderung zur Treue gegenüber dem Christentum belegt und vor einem Rückfall in die pagane Religion warnt, die er in Anlehnung an paulinische Gedanken als Dämonenverehrung brandmarkt. Im Mittelpunkt der Schrift stehen die Beispielerzählungen des 2. Makkabäerbuches über das Martyrium des Eleazar und der 7 Brüder und ihrer Mutter, die als biblischer Typus für das christliche Martyrium gelten und den Ausgangspunkt für die christliche Martyrerliteratur bilden
Die Homilien zum Buch Genesis by Origen( )

9 editions published between 2002 and 2011 in German and Latin and held by 549 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Im Zentrum von Origenes' Arbeit stand stets die Exegese der Hl. Schriften. Zu seinen großen Bibelkommentaren gesellte sich im Lauf der Zeit eine schlichtere Spielart der Bibelauslegung in Gestalt von Predigten, die v.a. das Alte Testament mit den Schlüsseln der Allegorese und der frühchristlichen Typologie ergründen. Nach paulinischer wie philonischer Tradition unterscheidet Origenes dabei zwischen einer wörtlichen und einer übertragenen Auslegung der Hl. Schrift. Letztere kann zwei Ebenen gewinnen, eine moralische, die eher den einzelnen Gläubigen berührt, und eine spirituelle, die den großen Glaubensgeheimnissen gilt. Gerade im Fall seiner (nur in der lateinischen Übertragung Rufins erhaltenen) Predigten zum Buch Genesis ist es spannend zu verfolgen, wie Origenes diese Vielfalt heiliger Erkenntnisse, die von platonisch-stoischer Kosmologie bis hin zur Allegorese von Lots versteinerter Frau reichen, seiner Gemeinde als Lehrer wie Seelsorger zu vermitteln sucht
