About the Author

Peter W. Martens is Assistant Professor for Theological Studies at Saint Louis University. Prior to arriving in St. Louis he taught at the University of Notre Dame and Yale Divinity School. He specializes in Origen and his legacy, and has wide-ranging interests in the history of biblical interpretation.


`This text is a fresh and edifying reading of Origen's extant literary corpus. Martens's deep reading in Origen is evidenced on every page, and his exemplary interaction with the secondary literature recommends this monograph to every student of Origen.' Jonathan J. Armstrong, Journal of Theological Studies Vol. 65 `Martens here demonstrates something of the integrative power of Origen's vision of the scriptural interpreter with remarkable economy and careful, extensive scholarship.' Ben Fulford, Theology Vol. 116
