Origen on “the secret and hidden things of God.”

“One of the greatest exponents of the allegorical interpretation of Scripture, Origen searched the Bible for the ‘secret and hidden things of God.’ Fundamental to Origen’s mystical theology is the idea that the soul’s beauty consists in being created in the image of God so that there exists a kinship between the human mind and God. There is a progressive revelation of God in the Bible and a progressive growth of the spiritual life in the believer.” (Ursula King, Christian Mystics, p. 35)
