I am currently a Ph.D student in History of Christianity at the University of Notre Dame and a doctoral fellow at the Tantur Ecumenical Institute in Jerusalem for the 2017-2018 academic year. I graduated from East Carolina University where I received my BA in Classics and Religious Studies. In May of 2012 I received my M.A. in Early Christian Studies from the University of Notre Dame.

My dissertation is titled “Nestorius Latinus: The Latin Reception and Critique of Nestorius of Constantinople.” While much work has been done on Nestorius in his Greek milieu, my dissertation traces how Latin authors from the fifth to the eighth centuries conceive of and discuss Nestorius and Nestorianism.

    We are starting two studies at our Parish, St Margaret Mary’s here in Texas – Joshua and Revelation. I recall Origen gave a few(?) homilies preaching the parallels between, for instance, the battle of Jericho and the end of the world. I can’t find it on the Internet, other than in books to order. Might you know from your studies about these parallels or trustworthy websites that I can go to for excerpting from Origen’s or other anchient fathers comments??

    Thanks for any help or advice. Stay blest.

    I’m so sorry it took me this long to reply. I approved your comment, but then couldn’t find it, expecting it to be on a post somewhere. I’m not sure exactly where you could find it, but I suspect Origen’s “Homilies on Joshua”, published by CUA in their “Fathers of the Church” series would be the place to look.

    You could also look to two other sources for the Fathers on particular Bible passages:
    1) The Ancient Christian Commentary Series, published by InterVarsity Press and edited by Thomas Oden.
    2) The Church’s Bible, published by Eerdman’s and edited by Robert Louis Wilken.

    The former takes smaller excerpts from more Fathers on each passage or chunk of passages – the latter gives you fuller texts from fewer Fathers. Both approaches have their merits, depending upon your need. I hope this helps.
