Spirit and Fire: Origen - A Thematic Anthology of His Writings
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Originally published in German in 1938, this highly acclaimed volume presents more than one thousand selections from the various extant writings of Origen, the great Alexandrian theologian. Robert J. Daly has retranslated the majority of these texts from the original Greek and Latin, added the scriptural references in the translated texts and an index, and included updated bibliographical information. Hans Ur von Balthasar said of this anthology that it gave him the greatest joy of all his many books: "In Origen I discovered that brilliant sense of what is Catholic, which I myself would like to attain."
