The Dimensionality of Things
Origen, to Heraclides:
“Our Lord and Saviour is in his relation to the Father and God of the universe not one flesh, not one spirit, but what is much higher than flesh and spirit, one God.”
It was Bishop Heraclides who needed setting straight, in the papyri found at Toura in Egypt, the better part of a century ago. He was having trouble with his whole conception of the Trinity. So was his congregation, we might gather, as the heresy of “modalism” was hatching out, in old Alexandria.
This is necessary to mention because, still today, it is Origen whose orthodoxy is suspected.
