Chapter Summary

Since the last comprehensive monograph on Eusebius by David Wallace-Hadrill, the exegesis of the bishop of Caesarea has been understood through his auspicious definition: Eusebius as an exegete has to be placed, like his city, between Antioch and Alexandria, halfway between the literal and the allegorical exegesis. This chapter starts by studying a precise example, coming from the central period of Eusebius' production, the Questions and answers on the gospels, one of his first texts completely devoted to biblical exegesis. The Questions were begun at about the same time as the Evangelical demonstration, and were finished possibly later. The chapter analyzes the first question addressed to Stephanos, which was for sure composed alongside the Evangelical demonstration, or shortly before, as some cross-references show.
