There’s a new (very affordable) paperback English translation of Eusebius: The Church History. The translator has tried to make the ancient work accessible to a wider modern audience. You’ll find a review here.

Good news, Mike. The review makes me like it all the more. ;) Maier’s approach is to let the readers decide for themselves if Eusebius is a trustworthy historian or if he presents the material “through the lens of Christian Imperialism”. Much more reasonable than the postmodernist “hermeneutics of suspicion”, in my humble opinion.

I wonder what it’s like. I’ve long got used to G.A.Williamson’s version. But… hasn’t Maier redited Eusebius to make it easier to read, by chopping out some of the verbiage?
