Les Fins Dernieres Selon Origene, Hardback Book

Les Fins Dernieres Selon Origene Hardback

Part of the Variorum Collected Studies series


This volume is concerned with the eschatology of Origen, the great 3rd century theologian and philosopher of Alexandria.

Of all the doctrines attributed to him, those on the resurrection of man and the end of days have evoked the most opposition and controversy, from Antiquity to the Patristic scholarship of today.

Professor Crouzel argues that the thought of Origen himself has been consistently misunderstood and distorted, from the time of Methodius of Olympia onwards, and that renewed examination of Origen's own surviving writings can lead to a radically differing assessment of the orthodoxy of his views.

Among the particular points discussed are Origen's doctrine of Purgatory, commonly supposed to be a particularity of the Latin Church, and the relationship in his thought between the final purification at the end of time and the spiritual purification of existence here on earth. Ce volume traite de l'eschatologie d'Origene, le grand theologian et philosophe alexandrin du IIIe siecle.

De toutes les doctrines qui lui sont attribuees, ce sont celles sur la resurrection de l'homme et a la fin des jours qui ont provoque le plus d'oppositionet de controverse de l'Antiquitie jusqu'A notre epoque.

Le Pere Henri Crouzel maintient que la pensee veritable d'Origene A ete constamment mal interpreteee et corrompue et ce, des l'epoque de Methode d'Olympe.

Selon l'auteur, un nouvel examen des ecrits d'Origene peut mener A une appreciation totalement differente de l'orthodoxie du theeologien.

Parmi les points specifiques debattus sont: la doctrine d'Origene sur la purgatoire - communement supposee Atre un domaine latin - et sur le rapport, dans ses pensees, entre l'ultime purificationde la fin des temps et celle, d'ordre spirituel, de l'existence ici-bas sur terre.
