Jerome depended on and criticized Origen in three controversies: The Jovinianist controversy, the Origenistic controversy and the Pelagian controversy. The causes of Jerome's an-ti-Origenistic polemics, the methods he used, and the effects of his theology and eschatology are examined. Theories of difference and the "Other" are used in examining which functions Origen and Origenism had in Jerome's construction of his own orthodoxy.
