The seven books of history against the pagans by Paulus Orosius( Book )

21 editions published between 1900 and 2001 in English and held by 1,500 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Orosius' Seven Books of History against the Pagans provide a Christian interpretation of history from God's creation of the world to the period of the Gothic attacks on the Roman Empire in the early fifth century. By the end of that century, Orosius' work was already a classic and its Christian perspective ensured that it remained an immensely popular and standard work of reference on antiquity in the medieval world. Available now in English translation for the first time since 1936, this key work of historical and geographical reference in the medieval world will delight scholars of early Christianity and pagan history

Eusebius of Caesarea, ca. 260-340 CE, born in Palestine, was a student of the presbyter Pamphilus whom he loyally supported during Diocletian's persecution. He was himself imprisoned in Egypt, but became Bishop of Caesarea about 314. At the Council of Nicaea in 325 he sat by the emperor, led a party of moderates, and made the first draft of the famous creed. Of Eusebius's many learned publications we have Martyrs of Palestine and Life of Constantine; several apologetic and polemic works; parts of his commentaries on the Psalms and Isaiah; and the Chronographia, known chiefly in Armenian and Syriac versions of the original Greek. But Eusebius's chief fame rests on the History of the Christian Church in ten books published in 324-325, the most important ecclesiastical history of ancient times, a great treasury of knowledge about the early Church
Saint Basil, the letters by Basil( Book )

27 editions published between 1926 and 2005 in English and Greek, Modern and held by 547 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

BASIL the Great was born ca. AD 330 at Caesarea in Cappadocia into a family noted for piety. He was at Constantinople and Athens for several years as a student with Gregory of Nazianzus and was much influenced by Origen. For a short time he held a chair of rhetoric at Caesarea, and was then baptized. He visited monasteries in Egypt and Palestine and sought out the most famous hermits in Syria and elsewhere to learn how to lead a pious and aescetic life; but he decided that communal monastic life and work were best. About 360 he founded in Pontus a convent to which his sister and widowed mother belonged. Ordained a presbyter in 365 in 370 he succeeded Eusebius in the archbishopric of Caesarea, which included authority over all Pontus. He died in 379. Even today his reform of monastic life in the east is a basis of modern Greek and Slavonic monasteries. -- JACKET
