Chapter Summary

In the Ecclesiastical History and the Martyrs of Palestine, Eusebius takes pains to delineate the school around Pamphilus and to show its philosophical merit and connection to the tradition of Origen. From some modern scholarly positions, it is a mistake to believe that this school existed, was connected to Origen or was philosophical in nature. As this chapter shows, the designation of the school of Pamphilus as philosophical and grounded in the work of Origen at Caesarea are two important organizational themes for Eusebius. If they were compelling to him, although one reads with suspicion as a modern historian, one ought perhaps to begin with what was relevant to the ancient writer and his environment.
