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 970 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

Homilies on Luke ; Fragments on Luke by Origen( Book )

15 editions published between 1996 and 2009 in English and held by 595 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Origen assumed that each word had a meaning that is both profound and relevant to the reader - for the Holy Spirit is never trite and what the Holy Spirit says must always touch the hearer. This volume, the first English translation of the extant homilies and of fragments from the commentary on Luke, is an important addition to the growing body of Origen's work now available in English
Homilies on Jeremiah : Homily on 1 Kings 28 by Origen( Book )

12 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 577 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 Joshua by Origen( Book )

14 editions published between 1900 and 2010 in English and held by 564 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( Book )

15 editions published between 2001 and 2010 in English and held by 547 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 Judges by Origen( Book )

11 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 496 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 176 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 56 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
