A propos de cet article

Language: English . Brand New Book. An exposition challenging inveterate verdicts ingrained in the historical / theological mindset about Origen, who is shown to have produced a sheerly new theory of Time, the Christian one. Claims attributing the tenet of a beginningless world to him are disproved. The author challenges the widespread impression about this theology being bowled head over heels by its encounter with Platonism or Neoplatonism, casting new light on Origen s grasp of the relation between Hellenism, Hebrew thought and Christianity.

A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

An exposition challenging inveterate verdicts ingrained in the historical / theological mindset about Origen, who is shown to have produced a sheerly new theory of Time, the Christian one. Claims attributing the tenet of a 'beginningless world' to him are disproved. The author challenges the widespread impression about this theology being bowled head over heels by its encounter with Platonism or Neoplatonism, casting new light on Origen's grasp of the relation between Hellenism, Hebrew thought and Christianity.

Critique:

'Professor Panayotis Tzamalikos has become a recognised authority on Origen's understanding of Time. This erudite and closely argued new study sheds further light on a pivotal theme in Origen's thought, uncovering generalised misapprehensions about 'Platonism' and 'Greek views' of complex issues. A fine achievement.' George Newlands, Professor of Divinity, University of Glasgow. 'The aim of this erudite book is to rescue Origen from the ' tragic ' misunderstandings which arise sometimes from too credulous a use of Latin renderings from lost archetypes, and sometimes from the obtrusion of other men's libels into printed editions of the De principiis. [...] All students of antiquity will derive profit from the masterly review of ancient theories of time in the second half of the volume.' M.J. Edwards, Journal of Ecclesiastical History, 2007. 'This is a very exciting book; Tzamalikos has admirably succeeded in providing the definitive exposition of Origen's cosmology and ontology of time, and has done so with confident enthusiasm. It will appeal to many readers, not simply students of Origen. ..those who have read this book will certainly eagerly anticipate its successors.' Shawn W.J. Keough Toronto Journal of Theology 2007
