Availability: In stock

Few works of the early Church are as interesting to the modern reader or as important to the historian as Origen's reply to the attack on Christianity made by the pagan Celsus. The Contra Celsum is the culmination of the great apologetic movement of the second and third centuries AD, and is for the Greek Church what St Augustine's City of God is for Western Christendom. It is also one of the chief monuments of the coming together of ancient Greek culture and the new faith of the expanding Christian society. Thus Origen's work is of interest not only to the historian and theologian, but also to the hellenist.

Origen (185-254) was an early Alexandrian scholar and theologian, and one of the most distinguished writers of the early Church. His belief in pre-existence and universal reconciliation were condemned by a council in the 6th century, but he is considered one of the most important church fathers. Celsus was a 2nd century Greek philosopher, best known for his book On the True Doctrine: A Discourse Against the Christians, which is the earliest known comprehensive attack on Christianity, and was critiqued by Origen in this book.
