Editorial Reviews

Scholars of the history and literature of Christianity and Judaism explore the life and enduring contributions of Eusebius of Caesarea, an important writer and historian from the early fourth century. The essays focus on elements of the story that Eusebius tells--the story of the early church, its relationship to Judaism, or its confrontation with the Roman Empire--and explore gaps left by Eusebius. The writers offer a cross-section of current scholarly methods in the study of early Christianity and Judaism. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
