Here is one of the best examples of Origen's exegetical methods applied in their purest form. Origen's allegorization of the Bride and the Bridegroom as Christ and the Church became an irresistible pattern for Christian interpretation of this beautiful Old Testament book for the next thousand years.
An Eighth Day View:
A monumental project which brings the English-speaking work key selections from the remarkable literature of early Christianity -- vertiable trasures of Christian faith and theology in superb translations.
