Edwards argues that Origen set out to construct a Christian philosophy, yet he did so with the intention of preserving theology from the infiltration of pagan thought. Examining the question of philosophical influence on Christian thought, Edwards argues that scholars have often leapt to unjustified conclusions based simply on common vocabulary or parallel development. This book advances new interpretations of the early Christian systems which are generally called Gnostic, and the Doctrine of the Trinity in Origens Platonist teacher Clement of Alexandria.

Edwards concludes that Origens hermeneutics, eschatology, cosmology and Trinitarian theology are all related to his understanding of human nature, which is radically opposed to that of Platonism.Author Biography: Mark Julian Edwards, Lecturer in Patristics, Christ Church, Oxford, UK
