Eusebius at EarlyChurch.
Eusebius in the Catholic Encyclopedia.
Eusebius was a Christian historian and bishop of Caesarea who
flourished early in century III. His literary works are invaluable
to the study of the Christianity of the first three centuries.
Photius of Constantinople summarizes a few Eusebian works in
his Bibliotheca. Chapters
9-13, 27, 39, 118, and 127 all describe books by Eusebius, and
chapter 89 deals with the continuation of the Church History by Gelasius of Caesarea.
Jerome, On Famous Men 81:
Eusebius, Caesareae Palaestinae
episcopus in scripturis divinis studiosissimus, et bibliothecae
divinae, cum Pamphilo martyre, diligentissimus pervestigator,
edidit infinita volumina. de quibus haec sunt:
libri quinque, ecclesiasticae historiae libri decem, chronicorum
canonum omnimoda historia, et eorum
et de evangeliorum diaphonia, in Isaiam libri decem, et contra
Porphyrium, qui eodem tempore scribebat in Sicilia, ut quidam putant,
libri triginta, de quibus ad me viginti tantum pervenerunt;
pro Origene libri sex, de vita Pamphili libri tres, de martyribus
alia opuscula, et in centum quinquaginta psalmos eruditissimi
commentarii, et multa alia. floruit maxime sub Constantino imperatore
et Constantio, et ob amicitiam Pamphili martyris, ab eo cognomentum
Eusebius bishop of Caesarea in Palestine was
diligent in the study of divine scriptures and with Pamphilus the
martyr a most diligent investigator of the divine library. He
published a great number of volumes among which are the following:
Demonstration of the gospel in twenty books, preparation for the
gospel in fifteen books, theophany in five books, church history in
ten books, chronicle of universal history and an epitome of this
last; also On discrepancies between the gospels, on Isaiah in ten
books, also against Porphyry, who was writing at that same time in
Sicily, as some think, in twenty-five books, also one book of topics,
six books of apology for Origen, three books on the life of Pamphilus,
other brief works On the martyrs, exceedingly learned commentaries
on one hundred and fifty psalms, and many others. He flourished
chiefly in the reigns of Constantine the Great and Constantius.
His surname Pamphilus arose from his friendship for Pamphilus the
