What is meaning of "I.c." in following sentence?
"Celsus mentions the story (in Origen's Contra Celsum, I.c. 1,32 ) and gives an authority"
Thank you in advance.

NO, I do not have the definitive answer, but I do have some information that may interest you.
I have been googling like mad for four days, and I have been able to get some very helpful information.
Look at this example:
Ferrarius, lib. i.c. iii p.108. ["lib." is the abbreviation for the Latin word "liber" -- "book" in English.]
I was told to interpret that as: Ferrarius, Book 1, Chapter Three, Page 108.
Regarding "Contra Celsum [the name of a book by Origen], I.c. 1,32," is it possible that the "I" should be "i"?
Is it possible that it should have been written as: "Contra Celsum, [lib] i. c. 1, page 32"?
Credit for the information goes to two netizens who use the user names "D. Griscom" and "DragONspeaker."
Thank you for your question. I learned something.
