History of the Church
Full Product Description
Just as Eusebius begins with a statement of Christian faith and a demonstration of its existence beyond the bounds of the Roman empire, continues with the story of its mission, persecution, divisions, and salvation despite its deprivation and suffering, and concludes with its secure establishment by the devout emperor Constantine, so Rufinuscontinues the story with the statement of faith of the Council of Nicaea, the account of its spread outside the Roman empire, the divisions and persecutions it su ered in his own time, and finally the victory over paganism of the orthodox emperor Theodosius. Rufinus's history was an immediate success. It was the first Latin Christian history, and as such it exerted great influence over his own generation and for a thousand years thereaYer when the general ignorance of Greek in the Latin church made Eusebius's original practically unavailable to it.
