Format: Paperback
Eusebius of Caesarea is not the easiest classical author, but G. A. Williamson's translation has done an excellent job of placing the text in a format, both readable accessible to the modern reader.
Eusebius is an essential source for anyone studying classical Roman history, or early Christianiy, because he is one the few writers who is preserved to us, almost in his entirety. The actual history that he gives us is invaluable - some accounts of events attested no where else, as well alternative accounts of events that are well known from history.
It should be said, Eusebius is problematic - he is tendentious is his style of writing, and occasionally distorts what actually happened. If you read Eusebius, read it with a good commentary.
As far as this particular edition goes, its very good but not perfect. The style chosen in the text works well, with quotations used by Eusebius in smaller font (and there are a lot of these!), and his own text larger, which allows the reader to distinguish between his sources.
Additionally, A. Louth has included in his revisions a useful Who's Who for the reader, so if you are searching Eusebius for a particular passage on one personality, you should be able to find it relatively easily. Some brief appendices explain some awkward points of history too, e.g. the ancient calendar.
Unfortunately, there is no index which is quite disappointing. Eusebius contains information on so many places, events and people, that an index would have been very useful indeed. The Who's who eases this situation somewhat, but having to search through his accounts for specific mentions of events can be time consuming.

Lack of notes and background obviously mean that this cannot be a full reference for students/enthusiasts - but it is a most useful
general guide , readable and such a bargain ! Text in English only. Will be worth five stars for those not needing more detail and precision as in an academic book.

For the student of ecclesial history this book is an ideal starting point. Though modern theology has shown some different understandings of how the Church developed after Christ's death, this book gives us a ground on which to begin our investigations.

Been sitting on my shelf daring me to read it for years....looking threateningly old, worthly, holy but most worryingly small font sized....i final wrestled it into submission and you know what it is great....and actually a pleasure to read.

Some magnificently uplifting passages and content which is as relevant today as it was 1800 years ago....truly "nothing new under the sun"

Old book, full of history facts but readable. Being one of the first books written on this subject, it may seem difficult at times.

Practical and factual information given not influenced by any one religion which is very good when you need to be historical in your studies.
