About "Scm Press A-Z of Origen"
The SCM Press A-Z of Origen provides students with ready access to and sure guidance through the life of Origen, the range of his theological explorations, his influences, his works and the controversies associated with him in life and in death. Origen's writings are here placed squarely in the flow of his life, within the geography of his ecclesiastical relations and regional controversies. This A-Z provides the student of patristics, with a reference to Origen but also includes an overview of Origen's own writings, a list of English translations, a list of critical editions in Latin and Greek, and a biography of his life - all of which make it a sound starting place for the student wishing to delve deeper into this period of history.
