Cameron and Hall have given us an accessible translation and introduction to this controversial and fascinating work by the 4th-century bishop, biblical exegete, and ecclesiastical historian Eusebius of Caesarea. The Life of Constantine has received a great deal of attention, much of it derisive, for its genre categorization-defying, cringe-inducing laudation of the famous emperor.

A fantastic edition with full translation and commentary. While it would be nice if the text was included, such a thing would have been an unnecessary burden given that a fairly recent critical edition of the text is available and it would have made this volume more obscenely expensive than it already is. Still, it's good to have this important text available in a good translation with an insightful commentary.
