Contra Celsum by Origen( Book )

61 editions published between 1967 and 2005 in 5 languages and held by 491 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

Contra Celsum = Gegen Celsus by Origen( Book )

in German and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

[Omslag] Zwischen 245 und 248 schuf Origenes in Caesarea mit der Schrift "Contra Celsum" eines seiner letzten und ausgereiftesten Werke. Noch immer war die erste systematische Kampfschrift gegen die Christen, die der gebildete Heide Celsus um 170 unter dem Titel "Alethes Logos" verfasst hatte, ohne Antwort geblieben. Die apologetische Replik des Origenes widmet sich detailliert jedem Einwand des paganen Polemikers, um diesen im umfassenden Rückgriff auf Philosophie, Religionsgeschichte und Bibel zu widerlegen. Kaum ein anderes Werk der apologetischen Literatur lässt die Konfrontation zwischen Antike und Christentum so direkt miterleben, wie die umfangreiche Streitschrift des Origenes, die durch Zitat und Erwiderung auf hohem intellektuellen Niveau die Repräsentanten zweier Kulturen, der alten hellenistischen Tradition und der neuen christlichen Religion, zu Wort kommen lässt. Nicht wenige der vorgetragenen Anfragen und Antworten blieben im Arsenal der Kritiker und Apologeten späterer Jahrhunderte gegenwärtig, ging es doch letztlich um die Einwände gegen und die Argumente für den einzigartigen Wahrheitsanspruch einer Offenbarungsreligion
