Samuel Fernandez: The pedagogical structure of Origen's De principiis and its Theology of Incarnation

Origen's De principiis is structured by successive developments of the same subject under different perspectives. This paper tries to show that the disposition of the chapters about the Son of God is guided by a particular conviction about the relationship between Hellenistic thought and biblical revelation. That is to say, that the treatise is structured according to a precise pedagogical path, designed to introduce the Christian novelty into Greek thought, particularly the novelty of Incarnation.
