Origen: Treatise on the Passover and Dialogue of Origen with Heraclides and His Fellow Bishops on the Father, the Son, and the Soul
The Treatise on the Passover was written around AD 245. Its central insight is that the Passover is not a figure or type of the passion of Christ, but a figure of Christ himself. The Dialogue with Heraclides was written between AD 244 and 249. It is the record of an unknown meeting—probably a synod—of bishops called to discuss matters of belief and worship. Both pieces come from the last decade of Origen’s ministry, when he was at the height of his powers.
Origen: Prayer, Exhortation to Martyrdom
Composed in AD 233, Origen’s Prayer combines both a theological treatise on prayer and a unique expression of prayer. Exhortation to Martyrdom, also in this volume, was written to provide solace to Origen’s great friend and patron, Ambrose, and the presbyter, Protoctetus, both of whom had been imprisoned. Exhortation to Martyrdom was written in AD 235.
