There are a couple of pages with relevant data to this, which I highlight here: Lightfoot's comment on this issue ; and various translations of Eusebius Praeparatio Evangelica ] 1. This seems a very strange thing for a historian of any sort to say.
My first thought was to look for anything about it in the HE, because I didn't have the post in front of me and hadn't recalled that it was not a quote from that work. But it wasn't labour lost. The 'quote' is not in the section in which he describes how he intends to proceed. This is all very suspicious.
The wording of the 'quote' is identical apart from some carelessness to what Williamson calls a sneer of Gibbon's. But the obvious thing to do is to look at the work 'quoted' and see if it contains the alleged quote. The passage from De praeparatione evangelica According to Quasten's Patrology, there is only the one English translation, done as part of a Greek edition.
I hope people will forgive me if I don't try to display the Greek on this page - I'm not sure how to do Greek characters reliably! So here is the chapter from that edition.
I've tried to reproduce the layout and line breaks: History, as such, is not under discussion in the work at all.
In this passage, a piece of Plato is discussed, and the way in which the Hebrew scriptures acknowledge the inability of most men to reason and how, unlike the philosophers, they don't exclude that class of men and embody it as part of their message is outlined.
Clearly the reference we started with is quite wrong. So where does that leave us? Well, it leaves us with Gibbon. What did he actually say, and did he reference it? Gibbon I looked at a reprint of Gibbon, and I've copied out enough to make sense. Volume I, chapter 16, p.
In this general view of the persecution which was first authorised by the edicts of Diocletian, I have purposely refrained from describing the particular sufferings and deaths of the Christian martyrs. It would have been an easy task.
The gravest of the ecclesiastical historians, Eusebius himself, indirectly confesses that he has related whatever might redound to the glory, and that he has suppressed all that could tend to the disgrace, of religion.
Note on p. Such is the fair deduction from two remarkable passages in Eusebius, l. The prudence of the historian has exposed his own character to censure and suspicion.
It was well known that he himself had been thrown into prison; and it was suggested that he had purchased his deliverance by some dishonorable compliance. The reproach was urged in his lifetime, and even in his presence, at the council of Tyre.
See Tillemont, Memoires Ecclesiastiques, tom. So let's look at those two references. The Ante-Nicene Fathers should supply our needs adequately. Here is the Ante-Nicene Fathers text, from http: The Destruction of the Churches.
When also, according to another prophetic word, "Contempt was poured out upon rulers, and he caused them to wander in an untrodden and pathless way.
Wherefore we have decided to relate nothing concerning them except the things in which we can vindicate the Divine judgment.
But we shall introduce into this history in general only those events which may be usefull first to ourselves and afterwards to posterity.
Let us therefore proceed to describe briefly the sacred conflicts of the witnesses of the Divine Word. But not long after, other decrees were issued, commanding that all the rulers of the churches in every place be first thrown into prison, and afterwards by every artifice be compelled to sacrifices.
The Nature of the Conflicts Endured in the Persecution. But a multitude of others, benumbed in spirit by fear, were easily weakened at the first onset. Of the rest each one endured different forms of torture.
But does it mean what Gibbon says? Or is Eusebius, faced with a huge amount of material for contemporary events, simply honestly stating that from here on he won't cover everything, but only those which are in some way useful to know about, whether positive, or negative but with a useful moral, and for the rest stick to general statements?Ten Activities for Establishing Classroom Rules | Lesson Plan When it comes to setting rules in the classroom, in some ways the old adage "hope for the best, but prepare for the worst" rings true..
