Nicene and Ante-Nicene Fathers, Ser. II, Vol I:
The Church History of Eusebius.: Chapter XXVII

Early Church Fathers  Index     

Chapter XXVII.—How the Bishops regarded Origen.

He was so earnestly affected toward Origen, that he urged him to come to that country for the benefit of the churches, and moreover he visited him in Judea, remaining with him for some time, for the sake of improvement in divine things. And Alexander, 1999 bishop of Jerusalem, and Theoctistus, 2000 bishop of Cæsarea, attended on him constantly, 2001 as their only teacher, and allowed 2002 him to expound the Divine Scriptures, and to perform the other duties pertaining to ecclesiastical discourse. 2003



On Alexander, bishop of Jerusalem, see chap. 8, note 6.


On Theoctistus, bishop of Cæsarea in Palestine, see chap. 19, note 27.


A number of mss., followed by Heinichen and some others, insert at this point ς žπος εἰπεῖν (“so to speak”).


The presbyter derived his authority to preach and teach only from the bishop, and hence these bishops extended to Origen, whom they had ordained a presbyter, full liberty to preach and teach within their dioceses.
