The previously lost commentary on the Psalms by Origen have been found in the Bavarian state library. They make these and their other manuscripts available over the web. This is a nice addition that fills a hole in our knowledge about Origen.

Are there any translations or indications of what is covered in them yet?

Since the discovery was just announced by the library, I expect it will still be many years before we see translations appear.

The opening and closing pages show quite a bit of wear and some damage and are hard to read. But they sure appear to be to be the real opening and closing of the commentary. And the text is over 700 pages. So I believe this is complete.

Oh, this is very exciting! I eagerly await the translations: Origen has long been my favorite heretic!
