I have been reading your forum and found some interesting topics and discussions, so I thought I would give it a try. I have many areas of interest. Some of them are Greek, Latin, Hebrew, Aramaic (and other cognate languages), translation, and exegesis, etc.

I did a paper once on Origen though that was over 30 years ago. What inspired you about him to give yourself his name on here?

He is considered by many to be the first scholar of the early church. He was one of only two in the early church, the other being Jerome, who knew Hebrew. His Hexapla was an extremely important work and was consulted by Jerome. "Contra Celsum" is relevant even in our time. Many of the arguments Origen refutes in that work are still being used today by Jesus mythers. He really is a fascinating person in so many ways.

It has been many years since I studied him, but I was under the impression he also had some views that we would consider heretical today.

For example
"He believed, for instance, in the pre-existence of souls and that eventually everyone, including the Devil, would be saved. In addition, he described the Trinity as a hierarchy, not as an equality of Father, Son, and Spirit."

True, but he has also been blamed for may things he did not believe or have anything to do with. He has been and is a scapegoat for many. He is like Constantine in that regard.
