Eusebius of Caesarea as a Historian
« on: June 12, 2014, 03:46:34 PM »
As Orthodox Christians, how much weight are we to give to the writings of Eusebius of Caesarea as history/tradition?  Also, does anyone know of a good commentary on his works?

I don't know of a commentary, though that would be quite interesting I think. He can't be used like a certain historical record, but if that's kept in mind I think he's quite valuable for transmitting especially ideas and beliefs held by earlier Christians IMO.
