Nov 15, Alexander Rolfe rated it really liked cesaria. He devoted his longest chapter, 8, almost exclusively to him. Josephus is relied on heavily as a historical source, as Eusebius had a limited command of Hebrew. Of course, having received this book for Christmas influenced this decision somewhat.

Once, Eusebius gets to the years of his life, however, and speaks of the persecutions that some faced, I was reminded that American Christians, a For my latest history fix, I decided to go way back to the first years after Christ. Not a few of his family members and friends were martyred for their faith, going willingly, even joyfully to their deaths.

As I read, I took some notes which I’ve included belo Eusebius’s account of the early church is one of the most valuable sources of Ecclesiastical history that we have. This is an excellent translation and the list of “Who’s Who in Eusebius” at the end of the book is an awesome resource. It proceeds chronologically and systematically, documenting the growth of the Church as it spread from Jerusalem throughout the whole of the Roman Empire and beyond.

Eusebius is sometimes skeptical of the authorship of Biblical books so this initially took me by surprise. Its language and style, however, were off-putting to my efforts.

In tracing the history of the Church from the time of Christ to the Great Per Eusebius’s account is the only surviving historical record of the Church during its crucial first years. In tracing the history of the Church from the time of Christ to the Great Persecution at the beginning of the fourth century, and ending with the conversion of the Emperor Constantine, his aim was to show the purity and continuity of the doctrinal tradition of Christianity and its struggle against persecutors and heretics.
