• Peter Martens deposited Response to Mark Edwards in the group Group logo of OrigenOrigen on Humanities Commons 3 years, 11 months ago

    My essay highlights differences between how Edwards and I approach ancient sources and the scholarship on them. My response also provides a dossier of a dozen or so passages where Origen portrays paradise as a divine or incorporeal place, distinct from this earth, and as a residence for pre-existent rational creatures. Edwards denies such a portrait.
