The introduction states the premise for this study, noting the irony that Palladius' works have been increasingly mined for historical information concerning late fourth and early fifth century Christian controversies and personalities, yet he has been largely ignored as a subject of study per se. This chapter discusses briefly Palladius' contribution to Christian literature and history, the significance of his work for contemporary scholarship, the relation of this book to contemporary scholarship, and it concludes with a summary of each chapter of the book. It also clarifies the use of the terms Origenist and Origenism in this study.
