Origen of Alexandria (185-254) was the most prolific and most brilliant scriptural scholar of the early Church, and one of its most original and most controversial theologians. This course will explore his understanding of how the scriptures should be interpreted, examine his interpretation of some passages from scripture in detail, and outline some aspects of the theological and spiritual understanding he drew from them.
