First English printing of this important work (WING O424).Origen was taken with the magic of names and in Contra celsum he warns that the name of Abrahm & other patriarch were so powerful that they could be misused even by those "who work wth incantations and other magical arts" cf.Brian Coperhaver The Secret Names of God (available on Google)
