This chapter aims to contribute to our knowledge of what is known as ‘Origenian Platonist moment’ by analysing English translations of three Latin academic texts by George Rust, with annotations to the two longer ones, written in 1656 and 1658 while he was a fellow of Christ’s College at the University of Cambridge: Messias in S. Scriptura promissus olim venit (The Messiah promised in the Holy Scripture came a long time ago); Act Verses, a souvenir printed broadsheet containing two poems, Resurrectionem e mortuis Scriptura docet nec refragatur Ratio (Scripture teaches the resurrection from the dead, and reason does not contradict this) and Anima separata non dormit (The soul, separated from the body, does not sleep); and Resurrectionem è Mortuis S. Scriptura tradit, nec refragatur Ratio (The Holy Scripture tells of the Resurrection of the dead, nor does reason oppose it). The two 1658 texts formed part of what was perhaps the most public exposition and celebration of Origenian Platonisme in Interregnum Cambridge.
