Abstract

Eusebius of Caesarea (c. 260/264–339) is among Christian writers whom Classicists and ancient historians can study with the most interest and profit. Practitioner of a host of literary genres, he wrote the first complete church history, the first universal chronology in antiquity, a biography and panegyric on the first Christian emperor, massive apologetic works that drew on an extensive knowledge of Greek philosophy, history, and rhetoric, biblical commentaries, controversial theology, pedagogical works, and various instrumenta studiorum for biblical exegesis.
