Origen and Greek Patristic Theology


Charles Scribner’s Sons 1901

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


In Origen and Greek Patristic Theology, William Fairweather delves into the controversial thought of one of the church’s first theologians. This expository volume in the World’s Epoch-Makers series focuses on the life, work, doctrine, influence, and personality of Origen, “the great teacher of the Greek Church.” Fairweather does not assume familiarity with the work of Origen, and minimizes technical philosophical and theological language, but at the same time avoids “catering for a public which no art or device will ever induce to concern itself with Greek Patristic Theology.” This classic volume is an excellent introduction to the progenitor of theology as science.
