Origen, Commentary on the Psalms (Edition of the Fragments)


Due to the difficult situation of tradition, Origen's commentaries on the Psalms have to date been poorly researched. The claims for origenic authorship so far (Delarue, Pitra) are not entirely convincing. Scholars (especially Devreesse, Rondeau and Mühlenberg) refer to the catenae tradition instead as a source for original texts from Origen. The project at hand collects and edits out of the catenae manuscripts all the fragments of the commentaries on the Psalms which can be attributed to Origen.
