Reviews - What do our customers think?
Essential Alexandrian Texts  Feb 10, 2007
This excellent volume in the Library of Christian Classics includes an English translation of Origen's Dialogue with Heraclides, recovered in 1941. The work is important for an understanding of Alexandrian theology, and especially for Origen's Christology. Other works included in English are Clement of Alexandria's Stromateis III (On Marriage) and VII (On Spiritual Perfection) and Origen's On Prayer and Exhortation to Martyrdom.
 
Well put together.  Jun 27, 2006
I thought that the writings of Clement was covered quite well. Origen has always been 'long of wind' and yet you need not be a scholar to understand what he said
 
Execellent collection of Alexandrian works...  Mar 27, 2000
As the title suggests, this is a collection of works by Christians who lived in the Egyptian city of Alexandria. The following works are included: "On Marriage," and "On Spiritual Perfection" by Clement of Alexandria (which are technically Stromata books III and VII, the former which is only in Latin in the Ante-Nicene Fathers set.), "On Prayer," "Exhortation to Martyrdom," and "Dialogue with Heraclides," by Origen (all three books are absent from the Ante-Nicene Fathers set). There are nice introductions to each book and each author. Chadwick gives very detalied notes and explanations of Origen's "On Prayer." This is an excellent book for 2 reasons. First it is a great sample of the skilled thinkers of Alexandria. Second, it acts as a good supplement to the Ante-Nicene Fathers set.
