9780268041281: Origen and the History of Justification: The Legacy of Origen’s Commentary on Romans

Standard accounts of the history of interpretation of Paul’s Letter to the Romans often begin with St. Augustine. As Thomas P. Scheck demonstrates, however, the Commentary on the Epistle to the Romans by Origen of Alexandria (185-254 CE) was a major work of Pauline exegesis which, by means of the Latin translation preserved in the West, had a significant influence on the Christian exegetical tradition. 

Scheck begins by exploring Origen’s views on justification and on the intimate connection of faith and post-baptismal good works as essential to justification. He traces the enormous influence Origen’s Commentary on Romans had on later theologians in the Latin West, including the ways in which theologians often appropriated Origen’s exegesis in their own work. Scheck analyzes in particular the reception of Origen by Pelagius, Augustine, William of St. Thierry, Erasmus, Cornelius Jansen, the Anglican Bishop Richard Montagu, and the Catholic lay apologist John Heigham, as well as Martin Luther, Philip Melanchthon, and other Protestant Reformers who harshly attacked Origen’s interpretation as fatally flawed. But as Scheck shows, theologians through the post-Reformation controversies of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries studied and engaged Origen extensively, even if not always in agreement. An important work in patristics, biblical interpretation, and historical theology, Origen and the History of Justification establishes the formative role played by Origen’s Pauline exegesis, while also contributing to our understanding of the theological issues surrounding justification in the western Christian tradition. “Thomas Scheck's Origen and the History of Justification is first of all invaluable for increasing readers' exposure to a primary text of an exegete and theologian who will always be very relevant for the church—Origen. Second, this work is invaluable for presenting all sides of the debate today on the meaning of justification. All who weigh in on the doctrine of justification must consult this work in order to understand the seismic quakes that still affect Christians' balance on this issue. And third, since this book focuses on Origen's Romans commentary, it must be read by all Romans students who want to be able to discern the magnetic fields that still powerfully pull readers of Paul's letter in different directions.” —Mark Reasoner, Bethel University “The interpretation of Paul’s Letter to the Romans has been a central and continuing preoccupation in the western Christian tradition. Origen’s contribution to its interpretation was seminal, subtle, and suggestive. But the expansiveness of Origen’s Commentary on Romans, combined with later controversies about Origen’s views, appears to have inhibited scholars from tracing the reception of Origen’s commentary in the West. Thomas P. Scheck’s book ably and admirably remedies this oversight.“ —Theodore de Bruyn, University of Ottawa “Thomas Scheck demonstrates the range of Origen's influence and establishes his as the real alternative to the Augustinian understanding of the divine operation in Christians. His study raises again the questions posed by Robert O'Connell of Augustine's appropriation of and dissent from Origen. In each chapter, Scheck both reports and advances the existing scholarship on Origen's influence.” —Patout Burns, Vanderbilt Divinity School

About the Author:

Thomas P. Scheck is assistant professor in pastoral theology at Ave Maria University. He is the first English translator of Rufinus’s Latin edition of Origen’s Commentary on the Epistle to the Romans.

Review:

“An important work in patristics, biblical interpretation, and historical theology, Origen and the History of Justification establishes the formative role played by Origen’s Pauline exegesis, while also contributing to our understanding of the theological issues surrounding justification in the western Christian tradition.” —Vigiliae Christianae



“This book . . . deserves to be described as a work of mature scholarship. It focuses on Origen’s interpretation of what St. Paul said about justification in his Letter to the Romans. . . . Scheck has convincingly shown that Origen’s exegesis of Romans and his interpretation of Paul on justification are well worth the attention of scholars and serious students engaged in those disciplines.” —Religious Studies Review

 

“This book is to be applauded for its boldness: any study courageous enough to attempt to survey a doctrine as controversial as justification in the western tradition and which makes that attempt via largely self-contained analyses of some of the West’s major theological thinkers and writers is bound—almost by definition—to be a contribution to the field. Second, this book provides a service for scholars by assembling such a significant portion of the essential primary evidence for the crucial issue of justification into one volume.” —Augustiniana



“In Origen and the History of Justification Thomas Scheck provides a valuable and well-researched study of an important topic. I find this work very helpful for both students of Christian historical theology, especially in medieval and reformation studies, and for an ongoing ecumenical dialogue. . . . Thomas Scheck prepares us to find Origen as a living partner in a dialogue about grace and divinization that is of both historical and contemporary significance.” —Sixteenth Century Journal



“This is a marvelous book. The standard wisdom when it comes to the doctrine of justification by faith has been that the writers of the early church fell short of its primary meaning: which was Paul’s true intention. . . . Thomas Scheck challenges this construction by looking carefully at how Rufinus’ Latin version of Origen’s Commentary on the Romans was received and interpreted by Augustine, Erasmus, Luther, and several writers from the post-reformation in the seventeenth century.” (Scottish Bulletin of Evangelical Theology)

“An important work in patristics, biblical interpretation, and historical theology, Origen and the History of Justification establishes the formative role played by Origen’s Pauline exegesis, while also contributing to our understanding of the theological issues surrounding justification in the western Christian tradition.” (Vigiliae Christianae)

“In Origen and the History of Justification Thomas Scheck provides a valuable and well-researched study of an important topic. I find this work very helpful for both students of Christian historical theology, especially in medieval and reformation studies, and for an ongoing ecumenical dialogue. . . . Thomas Scheck prepares us to find Origen as a living partner in a dialogue about grace and divinization that is of both historical and contemporary significance.” (Sixteenth-Century Journal)

“Scheck’s work makes an important contribution to our understanding of the great third-century exegete, his influence on later interpreters, and his enduring significance for the church as it reads Romans today.” (Pro Ecclesia)
