    Aims and Scope

    With the exception of one other homily, Origen’s Homilies on the Book of Jeremiah are his only sermons that have been handed down to us in the original Greek, and they impart an impression of the original style of the preacher Origen. Moreover, the Book of Jeremiah was an infrequent subject of commentary for the ancient Church. Origen identified his own experiences as a preacher with the fate of the Prophet Jeremiah, who was rejected by his audience, and, in this way, Origen made a highly personal connection to this biblical text.
