Chapter Summary

Eusebius was born in Caesarea ca. 260 and died at an advanced age in 339 CE; he served the church for approximately 26 years as the Bishop of Caesarea Maritima, his home town. A less well-known side of this renowned church father is his political ecclesiastical career particularly within the Roman Palestinian orbit. From a strictly political stance the implicit message of the text is that the Christian territorial gains and appropriation of the Holy Land have been handed down by God to future generations on a silver platter dripping with the blood of the martyrs. Thus, already in the early twenties, the two sees of Jerusalem and Caesarea found themselves embroiled in an emerging all-encompassing theological conflict.
