The Contra Celsum is the culmination of the great apologetic movement of the second and third centuries AD and a chief monument to Greek Orthodoxy. Professor Chadwick's English translation explores this text through detailed notes and discussion on both Celsus and by: Home > Fathers of the Church > Contra Celsum (Origen > Book V.

Contra Celsum, Book V. (as in an apologetic work directed against an alien from the faith, and for the sake of those who are still children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with.

Against Celsus (Greek: Κατὰ Κέλσου Kata Kelsou; Latin: Contra Celsum), preserved entirely in Greek, is a major apologetics work by the Church Father Origen of Alexandria, written in around AD, countering the writings of Celsus, a pagan philosopher and controversialist who had written a scathing attack on Christianity in his treatise The True Word.

The giant treatiseContra Celsumis Origen's main and longest work. It is of significance for both Greek Patristics and Ancient Philosophy. However, the extant text of the treatise is lacunose and corrupt.

Two outstanding editions - by Paul Koetschau () and Marcel Borret () - are not critical enough. Origen begins Chapter 32 of Book 7 with: Celsus next assails the doctrine of the resurrection, which is a high and difficult doctrine, and one which more than others requires a high and advanced degree of wisdom to set forth how worthy it is of God.

[Origen, Against Celsus, ]. 3 - APOLOGETICAL WORKS. CONTRA CELSUM (Against Celsus). The most important apologetical work is his "Contra Celsum" (Against Celsus), a treatise composed of eight books written in answer to a detailed and far reaching attack by Celsus ( A.D), called the "True Discourse (Alethes Logos).It is worthy to note that Origen frequently employed technical terms.

CELSUS (ECE) Wrote"On the True Doctrine, known primarily from the polemical book, "Contra Celsum," written br Origen of Alexandria in response the Celsus's questions. Celsus' books, along with those of Porphry and others, were condemned by order of Valentinian III and Theodosious in CE.

The famous church commentator, Origen, in AD was debating with Celsus on what inspiration truly means. Celsus claimed there is not "only one God" (link), and instead there are many gods, and hence many inspired prophets.

Celsus cited spefically "the oracles of the Pythian priestess" as unjustly being ignored as inspired by Origen. Habermas observed that Origen, in fact, documented the fact that Josephus (although himself a Jew) did not believe Christ to be the Messiah (, p.

; cf. Origen’s Contra Celsum, ). However, as Habermas also pointed out, the fourth-century writer Eusebius, in his Ecclesiastical History (), quoted Josephus’ statement about Christ. Origen’s work in A.D., became the most impactful of all early Christian apologetics works.[1] New Testament scholars today regard Origen’s book which refuted the attacks against Jesus’ deity and resurrection that are being made once again today, as effectively neutralized as a threat.

ORIGEN (ca. ) Perhaps the most important apologist of the third century was Origen, who responded to elsus’ criticisms of Christianity. In his lengthy Contra Celsum, he argued against what Celsus saw as the philosophical, ethical, and historical shortcomings of Christianity.

For example, Origen contended that (1) Jesus.

Christian apologetics (Greek: ἀπολογία, "verbal defence, speech in defence") [1] is a branch of Christian theology that defends Christianity against objections.

[2] Christian apologetics has taken many forms over the centuries, starting with Paul the Apostle in the early church and Patristic writers such as Origen, Augustine of Hippo, Justin Martyr and Tertullian, then. Origen (c. ), in answering Celsus’complaint that Genesis has some days before the creation of the sun, moon, and stars, and some days after, replies that Genesis refers to "the day in which God made the heaven and the earth" and that God can have days without the sun providing the light (Contra Celsum, VI: ).
