Successor to Clement as head of the Christian school
in Alexandria, Origen later moves to Caesarea, where
he develops the largest Christian library in antiquity.
Origen gives some insight into the status of the
canon question in his time.
He notes that two
categories were commonly recognized by the
Books acknowledged by all Christians (21)
4 Gospels, Acts, 13 Paul, 1 Peter, 1 John, Revelation
Books disputed by some Christians (10)
Hebrews, James, 2 Peter, 2-3 John, Jude,
Ps-Barnabas, Hermas, Didache, Gospel of Hebrews
