Eusebius

$ 1.99

A scholar of the Biblical canon, Eusebius of Caesarea became counsellor of Constantine the Great and is regarded as an extremely learned Christian of the fourth century. Today his fame chiefly rests as a historian, whose pioneer work ‘Ecclesiastical History’ provides a chronological account of the development of Early Christianity from the first century to the fourth century. Eusebius also wrote an informative ‘Life of Constantine’, famously narrating the emperor’s victory at the Battle of the Milvian Bridge and his dramatic conversion to Christianity. Delphi’s Ancient Classics series provides eReaders with the wisdom of the Classical world, with both English translations and original Greek texts. This comprehensive eBook presents Eusebius’ collected works in English translation, with illustrations, informative introductions and the usual Delphi bonus material. (Version 1)
