Eucebius' Ecclesiastical History
Eusebius’ Ecclesiastical History is one of the classics of early Christianity and of equal stature with the works of Flavius Josephus. Eusebius chronicles the events of the first three centuries of the Christian church in such a way as to record a vast number of vital facts about early Christianity that can be learned from no other ancient source. When Eusebius (c. A.D. 260-340) wrote his Ecclesiastic History, his vital cern was to record facts before they appeared and before eyewitnesses were killed and libraries were burned and destroyed in persecutions by Rome.
More readable. This is the only full edition of Eusebius' Ecclesiastical History that has been re-typeset in modern, easy-to-read type. Archaic words have been modernized and the punctuation has been updated according to contemporary standards.
Easier to use. The Loeb numbering system (now the standard way to cite Eusebius' Ecclesiastical History) has been added to make it easier to locate passages referred to in other reference works. Also, all citations and cross-references have been updated from Roman numerals to the modern form of citation.
