(Read online at https://www.ccel.org/ccel/schaff/npnf... .) The rating is mostly for the extensiveness and informativeness of the annotations, which not only acted as a vital corrective (as they do to any of these primary sources), but also satisfied more of my historical curiosity than the content itself. Man, Eusebius really liked Constantine.

Once again I finish one of these books and am left to write a review with nothing that I have not already mentioned in the previous reviews. To recap: I do not have proper qualifications to review; I read them too quickly to give the review a fair chance; it's hard to "review" works like these; the free PDFs are awesome. I should probably copy and paste this review from now on. :)

Eusebius' contribution the faith was massive. His records of the early history of Christianity are invaluable, and his own life, tangled up as it was with the battle over Arianism and the inception of Christendom, is very instructive. Required church history reading.
