III. Apokatastasis and the Trinity

(Ilaria Ramelli)

In a series of seminal articles and monographs, including a monumental study on The Christian Doctrine of Apokatastasis, Ilaria Ramelli has defended the thesis of the compatibility between Christianity and philosophy (especially Platonism). Against the background of scholarly debates which tend to regard Christianity as anti-Platonism, Origen figures in Ramelli’s voluminous and interdisciplinary work as the archetypical example of the distinctive brand of Christian Platonism developed in patristic literature. Ramelli offers refreshing arguments for the identification of Origen the Christian with Origen the Neoplatonist. She defends Origenian exegesis as rooted in both Greek philosophy and Jewish-Christian Scriptures and literature. And she offers a compelling thesis for the inherent Hellenization of the Christian kērugma, exploring themes like freedom and morality, time and eternity, or trinitarian and hypostatic thought, in Origen and beyond. 

Colloquium Adamantianum

Origen is the founder of Christian Platonism. The Colloquium Adamantianum is a workshop hosted by the Cambridge Centre for the Study of Platonism twice a year. Each of the Colloquia revolves around the research of one pre-eminent contemporary scholar on Origen and the Alexandrian tradition, exploring the Platonist origins of Christian metaphysics.
