Contra Celsum by Origen( Book )

63 editions published between 1481 and 2013 in 6 languages and held by 1,064 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. Contra Celsum (or Against Celsus) 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. Henry Chadwick's English translation is preceded by a substantial introduction which includes discussion on Celsus' identity and theological outlook, as well as an account of Origen's philosophical background and method

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

Homilies on Jeremiah : Homily on 1 Kings 28 by Origen( Book )

12 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 574 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this collection, Origen seeks understanding of the significance of the hostility of the Chosen People towards the Prophet Jeremiah before their captivity in Babylon. Origen in many ways identified with the great prophet and thought of Jeremiah as a type for Christ in the Hebrew Scriptures. Origen realized that Jeremiah came at a crucial time in the history of Israel, the time of captivity, and he views this event and the events around it as pregnant with meaning for the people of his own time
Homilies on Joshua by Origen( Book )

"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( Book )

14 editions published between 2002 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 514 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
Homilies on Judges by Origen( Book )

11 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 493 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 Gospel according to John : books 13-32 by Origen( Book )

18 editions published between 1993 and 2006 in English and Undetermined and held by 174 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume contains what remains of Books 13-32 of Origen's Commentary on the Gospel according to John, and thus completes the publication of the first full English translation of this work that stands as the beginning of Christian scriptural exegesis. Ronald Heine introduces his translation with a discussion of the times and circumstances within which the commentary was composed. He also provides a survey of the major theological questions with which the commentary is concerned. These include Origen's thought on the nature of God, the person and work of Christ, his relation to the Father and to the created order, his teaching on the Holy Spirit, the Resurrection, and eschatology, and his ideas on the devil. Beginning with the conversation between Christ and the Samaritan woman at the well and ending with Christ's discourse to his disciples at the Last Supper, the commentary displays Origen's attention to the literal meaning of the passages but moves beyond them to try to grasp their spiritual significance, providing us with the opportunity to examine Origen's mystical thought. Origen also refutes the Gnostic reading of the Gospel presented by Heracleon, but this polemic is subordinate to his own investigation of the theological, philosophical, historical, and etymological questions raised by the Gospel. Because it treats many of the same passages of the Gospel of St. John for which St. Augustine provides a commentary in The Fathers of the Church, volume 88, this volume provides a worthy companion to it and invites a comparison of the thoughts of these two great exegetes upon what both regarded as the greatest of the Gospels. -- Provided by publisher

Aufforderung zum Martyrium by Origen( Book )

7 editions published between 1974 and 2010 in German and held by 53 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
Von Origenes und Hieronymus zu Augustinus : Studien zur antiken Theologiegeschichte by Alfons Fürst( Book )

1 edition published in 2011 in German and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

[Omslag] Der Band bietet Streifzüge durch das Wirken von drei führenden antiken Theologen abseits der üblichen Pfade der christlichen Dogmengeschichte. Origenes begründet mit seiner Freiheitsanthropologie die wissenschaftliche Exegese und Theologie auf dem Niveau der Zeit und legt die Grundlagen für eine christliche Kultur. Hieronymus, der größte Philologe der Alten Kirche, übermittelt in seinen Übersetzungen und Kommentaren griechisches und dank seiner Hebräischkenntnisse auch jüdisches Bibelwissen an den lateinischen Westen. Augustinus ist von beiden beeinflusst, entwickelt aber in kritischer Auseinandersetzung mit ihnen eine eigenständige und folgenreiche lateinische Theologie
