Heroes and Heretics: Origen with an E

Today I want to introduce you to a similar young man. Zealous and tenacious and, like Anne, familiar with tragedy from a young age. His name is Origen....with an E. One of the greatest theologians in Christian history that perhaps is only rivaled by Augustine in genius and only by Anne Shirley in his imagination. More than anything what I love about Anne Shirley is that she is a learner. She and Origen share a ravenous love for learning and for books. And like Anne, his speculation got him into some trouble.
