This is an important new contribution to our understanding of Origen and of early Christian theology in general. Casting both forwards and backwards in time, Guilty of Genius: Origen and the Theory of Transmigration illustrates Origen's debt to earlier Christian authors and Greek philosophers, as well as his enormous influence on later Christian theologians such as the Cappadocians and Maximus Confessor. Building on his earlier books, which have overturned erroneous but long-established assertions about Origen, the author plots a new trajectory, bringing together threads from earlier works into a coherent and focused treatment, and rebutting the myth that Origen maintained theories such as pre-existence and the transmigration of souls. This is a seminal and significant contribution to the scholarship of early Christianity and the Greek intellectual world of the second and third century.
