The giant treatise
Contra Celsum is Origen's main and longest work. It is of significance for both Greek Patristics and Ancient Philosophy. However, the extant text of the treatise is lacunose and corrupt. Two outstanding editions - by Paul Koetschau (1899) and Marcel Borret (1967-1969) - are not critical enough. The editor tried to restore Origen's original text and presents the reader with a reasonably reliable text.
Miroslav Marcovich taught at a number of universities, most recently that of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign. He has authored some twenty books and more than three hundred scholarly articles. In the last two decades of his life he prepared major critical editions of several patristic authors.
