Eusebius' Ecclesiastical History is one of the classics of early Christianity and of equal stature with the works of Flavius Josephus. Eusebius chronicles the events of the first three centuries of the Christian church in such a way as to record a vast number of vital facts about early Christianity that can be learned from no other ancient source.

When Eusebius wrote his Ecclesiastical History, his vital concern was to record facts before they disappeared, and before eye-witnesses were killed and libraries were burned and destroyed in persecutions by Rome. He faithfully transcribed the most important existing documents of his day so that future generations would have a collection of factual data to interpret. Thus Eusebius (c. A.D. 260-340) richly deserves the title "father of Church history."?

This complete edition of Eusebius' Ecclesiastical History has been retypeset in modern, easy-to-read type. Moreover, The Loeb numbering system (now the standard way to cite Eusebius' Ecclesiastical History) has been added to make it easier to locate passages referred to in other reference works.
