Eusebius of Caesarea (260?-340? A.D.), theologian, church historian and scholar, probably born in Palestine. Eusebius also collaborated with Pamphilus on an edition of the Septuagint from the text in the Hexapia done by the early Christian writer Origen and in the preparation of an apology (a defense of what he had written, the five books of which now 'lost') for Origen's teachings. After the martyrdom of Pamphilus, Eusebius left Caesarea for Tyre. At the beginning of the 4th century he fled Tyre during the persecutions of Christians.
He became bishop of Caesarea at the Council of Nicaea in 325 A.D. where, it is said, a final version of what was to become our modern Holy Bible was to be settled. However, there are many problems with what appears to be later assumptions about what really took place in Nicaea, some believing it was a meeting to set the canon, that is, the books of the Bible to be officially accepted as Holy Scripture. Instead it was more of a meeting of those having differing opinions in order to arrive at a firm dogma acceptable to all 300 plus religious leaders attending. Eusebius delivered the opening address and was made the leader of the Semi-Arians, the moderate party, who were averse to discussing the nature of the Trinity and preferred the simple language of the Scriptures to the subtleties of metaphysical.distinctions. Eusebius stood in high favor with Constantine the Great, emperor of Rome and was one of the most learned men of his time.

Apart from his historical writings, Eusebius was responsible for the Eusebian Canons, a system of cross-references to the Gospels (which are the books of Matthew, Mark, Luke, John) employed in many biblical manuscripts. He wrote a history of the world until 303 A.D. and a history of the Christian church until 324 A.D..Comprised from Microsoft® Encarta® Encyclopedia 99. © 1993-1998 All rights reserved.
