Commentary on the Gospel According to John

By Ronald E. Heine | Go to book overview

PREFACE

It is one of the strange quirks of scholarship that this earliest of all preserved Christian commentaries on a book of the New Testament has never previously been translated into English in its entirety. In the nineteenth century A. Menzies translated what remains of Books 1-10 into English for The Ante-Nicene Fathers series. In the twentieth century to date it has been translated in its entirety only into Italian by E. Corsini, and now into French by C. Blanc. There is a German translation of the larger part of the commentary by R. Gögler, and Book 13 was translated into English by C. M. Moss as part of a dissertation. Three major critical editions of the commentary have appeared since Menzies' translation of the remains of Books 1-10, those of Brooke (1896), Preuschen (1903), and Blanc (1966, 1970, 1975, 1982, 1992).

As in my translation of Books 1-10 (FOTC 80), I have translated from Preuschen's critical edition of the text, with constant consultation of the editions of Brooke and Blanc. The final volume of Blanc's edition and translation (Books 28 and 32) appeared as my work was being prepared for page proofs. I have, therefore, cited this volume only rarely in the present work. I have reviewed Blanc's final volume for JTS (forthcoming), and readers interested in seeing some of the places where we disagree in our understanding of the text in Books 28 and 32 should consult that review. I have again followed the Douay version of the Bible for the spelling of the names of Biblical persons and places.

If my conclusions in the Introduction are correct, the composition of the thirty-two books of this commentary occupied Origen off and on over a period of ten to twelve
