Homilies on Jeremiah: Homily on 1 Kings 28

By Origen; John Clark Smith | Go to book overview

INTRODUCTION

Origen and his Work

Origen of Alexandria ( A.D. ca.185-ca-253) is universally recognized as one of the greatest theologians and religious thinkers of the Christian Church. His work was voluminous and, in the opinion of both his contemporaries and those who followed, unique and profound. Unfortunately, there remain only a few extant works in the original Greek: several sections of the Commentary on John,1. several sections of the Commentary on Matthew,2. the apology Against Celsus,3. On Prayer, Exhortation to Martyrdom, the Dialogue with Heraclides,4. twenty homilies on Jeremiah, a homily on 1 Kings ( 1 Samuel) 28 and a rather large selection of fragments from various works. His philosophical theology On First Principles,5. unfortunately extant for the most part only in a Latin translation, was probably the first such work. Against Celsus was, and is, the most thorough and probing defense of Christianity
