The present volume contains a selection of scriptural problems and their solutions from various treatises of Origen. It is generally thought that the book, and also the division and titles of its chapters, were the work of the Church fathers Basil the Great and Gregory Nazianzen, and mailed by Gregory to Theodore, Bishop of Tyana.
As most of Origen's works have been lost, The Philocalia of Origen is an important text for the history of biblical interpretation. This English translation by George Lewis includes the translation of the Greek Preface and a detailed index.
With the Logos Bible Software edition all Scripture passages in The Philocalia of Origen are tagged and appear on mouse-over. This makes this resource more powerful and easier to access than ever before for scholarly work or personal Bible study.

This volume forms an excellent introduction to the study of Origen.
The English translation of the Philocalia of Origen by Rev. George Lewis will be widely welcomed by all students of early Christian literature.
