Codices Sabaiticus 232 & Holy Cross 104, Jerusalem
This new and revolutionary edition of Origen’s Commentary on Matthew is based on the version in Codex Sabaiticus 232, the most important of all because, unlike the 24 codices consulted by Erich Klostermann in his standard edition of 1941, it contains not only episodic ‘passages’, but also unique flowing text. The same codex also reveals for the first time how heavily Origen’s work was used, and sometimes copied to the letter, by ancient authors. Against the prevailing opinion, Professor Panayiotis Tzamalikos incontrovertibly confirms his long-standing thesis that the Commentary on Matthew is much later than the Contra Celsum.
Origen’s detractors, both ancient and modern alike, in order to show how much of a ‘heretic’ Origen was, point the finger at a garbled, untrustworthy, and heavily interpolated Latin rendering of his De Principiis, whereas reference to his Commentary on Matthew has always been scarce, and Pamphilus’ illuminating and documented Apology for Origen is normally paid almost no attention.
The author demonstrates that, unless the correlations of Origen’s work to both Greek philosophy and subsequent Patristic literature are knowledgeably delved and brought to light, it is impossible to recognise the real Origen, which has far too little to do with current allegations concerning pivotal aspects of his thought. By means of his commentary on this Greek text, P. Tzamalikos, as he did with his previous books, casts light on the widespread and multiform miscomprehension of Origen’s fundamentals, and demonstrates that this is a terra still calling for informed and unbiased exploration.

“One of the most controversial aspects of Origen’s theology, in antiquity and modern scholarship, has been his understanding of the Christian hope for a bodily resurrection”. 1 Indeed, at the beginning of the fourth century, Pamphilus said, “Among the other charges that they level against Origen

1.1 Origen and Symbol In the ancient Greek world, a messenger or merchant was frequently required to match one half of a clay dish with another half to prove his identity and the authenticity of his message or transaction. The two halves of the dish were each called a σύμβολον (symbol). 1

El uso teológico de metáforas de comer y beber
Author:
Este libro presenta un estudio exhaustivo sobre el uso teológico de las metáforas de comer y beber en la obra de Orígenes de Alejandría, considerando sus nociones fi siológicas y técnicas exegéticas. Orígenes de Alejandría es uno de los teólogos más importantes del cristianismo temprano. Su teología tiene una coherencia y profundidad que ha establecido el estándar para varios temas, como la Trinidad, la Cristología y la antropología. A través de las metáforas, realiza dos tareas desafi antes: profundizar en el misterio de Dios y comunicarlo. En este libro, el autor estudia los usos teológicos de Orígenes de las metáforas del comer y el beber, incluyendo el texto de las recientemente publicadas "Homilías sobre los Salmos". Este estudio confi rma no sólo los aspectos clásicos de la teología de Orígenes, sino que también muestra nuevas perspectivas, especialmente sobre las relaciones intratrinitarias y la reciprocidad en la relación entre Dios y los seres humanos.
