This study analyzes the presence of Origen in the debates between Luther and two catholic theologians at different times of the Reformation, the Dominican Ambrosius Catharinus and the priest Albert Pighius. While the former has no problem in quoting Origen as well as in criticizing him according to the different polemic strategy he is pursuing, the latter is more faithful to his favorite Church Father. Nevertheless, both Catharinus’ and Pighius’ witnesses prove that, at least for the controversial theology in the XVIth century, a real confrontation with the deep theological meaning of Origen’s speculation is not to be found.

Abstract

This study analyzes the presence of Origen in the debates between Luther and two catholic theologians at different times of the Reformation, the Dominican Ambrosius Catharinus and the priest Albert Pighius. While the former has no problem in quoting Origen as well as in criticizing him according to the different polemic strategy he is pursuing, the latter is more faithful to his favorite Church Father. Nevertheless, both Catharinus’ and Pighius’ witnesses prove that, at least for the controversial theology in the XVIth century, a real confrontation with the deep theological meaning of Origen’s speculation is not to be found.
