The articles of this volume shed new light on the reception of Origen's concepts of free will and universal salvation in 17th-century England and Europe. The Cambridge Platonists took up the Alexandrian's libertarian concept of freedom and discussed his core ideas within the new philosophical developments of their own time. In continental Europe, the Dutch Arminians, Jean Le Clerc and the Pietist couple Johanna Eleonora and Johann Wilhelm Petersen dealt with questions related to Origenism.
