Review by Steven Shisley forthcoming.


Eusebius of Caesarea's Ecclesiastical History remains the single most important source for the history of the first three centuries of Christianity and stands among the classics of Western literature. Eusebius's iconic story of the church's origins, endurance of persecution, and ultimate triumph, with its cast of martyrs, heretics, bishops, and emperors, has profoundly shaped the understanding of Christianity's past. This fresh new translation, which includes detailed introductory essays and explanatory notes, presents Eusebius's work in a way that is both accessible to new readers and thought provoking for specialists.
