Episode 3: Origen
In this episode we introduce you to one of the most famous--or infamous--church fathers: Origen of Alexandria, who was the first Gentile Church Father to learn the Hebrew Language, who created a way to interpret scripture that dominated Christian exegesis for the next millennium and a half, and who castrated himself (yes, you read that right...he castrated himself).
