Emperor Justinian and Origenism
One of the controversies Emperor Justinian in which was involved is the Origenism. The Alexandrian thinker had divided the theological world in two parts: one part that appreciated him and another part that condemned him. Justinian belonged in the latter category, the one who condemned Origen as heretic in a council in the year 543, after he had previously elaborated a treaty called Against Origen in which he exposed and fought the Alexandrian’s errors regarding the Holy Trinity, Anthropology, Christology and Eschatology. Justinian insisted so much that he summoned the fifth ecumenical council in 553, where Origen was to be sentenced forever as a hereticand, consequently, the theological genius of his works was buried for a long time.
