Eusebius of Caesarea was a historian of Christianity and Christian polemicist. He is famous for writing The History of the Church, On the Life of Pamphilus, the Chronicle and On the Martyrs.

This edition of The History of the Church was translated by Arthur Cushman McGiffert and published in Reviews: He refers to the Jewish authors Philo, Aristobulus, Josephus, Demetrius, and Eupolemus, as showing, all of them, in their works, that Moses and the Jewish race existed before the earliest origin of the Greeks.

These books abound also in much other learning. The "Demonstratio Evangelica" is divided into twenty books, of which only ten have been preserved. Eusebius first endeavors to demonstrate that the Mosaic law had only a local character and was not intended for a universal religion. For instance, the injunction to appear "thrice in.

"Eusebius and the Jewish Authors" examines Eusebius of Caesarea's use of non-biblical Jewish texts (e.g.

"Philo", "Josephus", "Aristobulus") in his "Praeparatio evangelica" and "Demonstratio evangelica". In the first part, Sabrina Inowlocki looks at the citation process in Ancient Greek Literature and in Eusebius' own double apologetic work.

Eusebius’s account is the only surviving historical record of the Church during its crucial first years. Bishop Eusebius, a learned scholar who lived most of his life in Caesarea in Palestine, broke new ground in writing the History and provided a model for all later ecclesiastical historians.

Eusebius on the Canon. Eusebius of Caesarea was an early historian of the Church. In his Ecclesiastical History (written about A.D. ) he discusses questions of canonicity in several places.

His view of the Old Testament canon is described thus by Westcott: Eusebius has left no express judgment on the contents of the Old Testament. Ulrich writes, "Eusebius's historical works are wholly inspired by his basic apologetic purpose. The Chronicle (chron.) (before ) intends (like p.

[the Praeparatio evangelica]) to prove the greater age (and therefore the superiority) of the Jewish religion (and therefore of Christianity) over the pagan religions. This is accomplished. Further, Eusebius devotes the entirety of Book II of the Demonstration to answering the charge that the Christ was promised to the Jews.

Eusebius argues, to the contrary, that the hope of the Christ was promised equally to the Jews and Gentiles and that the Christian church contains both Gentiles and the remnant of the Jews. Eusebius of Caesarea (/ j uː ˈ s iː b i ə s /; Greek: Εὐσέβιος τῆς Καισαρείας, Eusébios tés Kaisareías; AD / – /), also known as Eusebius Pamphili (from the Greek: Εὐσέβιος τοῦ Παμϕίλου), was a historian of Christianity, exegete, and Christian became the bishop of Notable works: Ecclesiastical History, On the Life of.

The Church History (Greek: Ἐκκλησιαστικὴ ἱστορία; Latin: Historia Ecclesiastica or Historia Ecclesiae) of Eusebius, the bishop of Caesarea was a 4th-century pioneer work giving a chronological account of the development of Early Christianity from the 1st century to the 4th was written in Koine Greek, and survives also in Latin, Syriac and Armenian manuscripts.

The story is of course much more elaborate in both Eusebius and Hegesippus (a Jewish-Christian author of the second century), whom is referenced in the present passage in verse It is likely that Hegesippus had not read Josephus’s account of the death of James, but has indulged in a highly polemical narrative to present James as a proto.

Church History of Eusebius: ALL 10 Books in One Volume: The Early Christianity: From A.D. Eusebius The Church History of Eusebius, the bishop of Caesarea, was a 4th-century pioneer work giving a chronological account of the development of Early Christianity from the 1st century to.

The whole Christian world has reason to be thankful that there lived at the opening of the fourth century a man who, with his life spanning one of the greatest epochs that has occurred in the history of the Church, with an intimate experimental knowledge of the old and of the new condition of things, was able to conceive so grand a plan and possessed the means and the ability to carry it out.

Eusebius’ Commentary on the Psalms (hereafter CPs) is probably the longest book he ever came late in his career, at a time when the Church was basking in the emperor’s favor and when the party of those with misgivings about the Council of Nicaea felt that politico-dogmatic momentum had swung in their favor, with the rehabilitation of Arius and the ascendancy of Eusebius of.

May I never quarrel with those nearest me, and be reconciled quickly if I should. May I never plot evil against others, and if anyone plot evil against me, may I escape unharmed and without the need to hurt anyone else.

May I love, seek and attain only what is good. T his is a welcome in-depth treatment of Eusebius of Caesarea's citation and use of non-biblical Greek-language Jewish prose writers in his apologetic magnum opus, the Apodeixis, more commonly known by the titles of its two component parts, Praeparatio Evangelica and Demonstratio Jewish writers are Aristobulus, Philo of Alexandria, Josephus, and the so-called ‘minor’ Jewish.

Since no other ancient author tried to cover the same period, Eusebius is our principal primary source for earliest Christianity, and his Church History is the cornerstone chronicle on which later historians would build.

The Jewish historian Flavius Josephus provides fascinating addenda to our information about the people, places, and events of. Eusebius himself is not an entirely trustworthy source, though, and even he had doubts about Papias, a writer who evidently was given to embellishment.

Eusebius does imply that Mark died in the 8th year of Nero's reign, which would have been before Peter died — a contradiction to the tradition that Mark wrote down Peter's stories after his death. This chapter is the only place in which Eusebius attempts to treat the canon systematically, and in it he is speaking purely as an historian, not as a critic.

He is endeavoring to give an accurate statement of the general opinion of the orthodox Church of his day in regard to the number and names of its sacred books. Eusebius () was the bishop of the church at Caesarea Maritima, and a prolific and respected author.

It seems, however, that he didn’t go back over his writing to tidy it up, so the Greek text of Church History, and previous literal translations into English, have been rambling in style and not easy to read.
