Editorial Review:
Eevised Text (C ambridge, University Press, 1893) of Dr. Armitage Kobinson, then Norrisian Professor of Divinity, subsequently Dean of Westminster, now Dean of Wells, who thus describes the original: The Philocalia of Origen is a compilation of selected passages from Origen sworks made by SS. Gregory and Basil. The wholesale destruction of his writings which followed upon the warfare waged against his opinions shortly after his death, has caused a special value to attach to the Philocalia as preserving to us in the original much of Origen swork which would otherwise have been entirely lost, or would have survived only in the translations of Eufinus. Moreover, even his great and comparatively popular work against Celsus depends for its text solely on a manuscript of the thirteen century, so that we have a cause for gratitude in the preservation of a large part of it in the Philocalia. But apart from its textual importance, this collection deserves attention as forming an excellent introduction to the study of Origen. Much of his best thought is here presented to us, arranged under various important heads; and we are guided to the appreciation of his theological standpoint by two of the strongest intellects of the century after his own. Bishop Westcott saccount of the great teacher of Alexandria of him whose proper name is said to mean the Son of light, and whose labours earned for him the title of A damantine, may perhaps be of service to the reader. The fortunes of Origen during his lifetime aptly prefigured the fate of his writings.
