A discussion of “Hellenistic” and “Judeo-Christian history writing” (on which, see below) leads her to pronounce that the History“must be placed within the frames of the traditional Hellenistic-Roman history writing…regarding time,…subject, form and style” (84), though the text articulates apologetic arguments too.4 The strongest part of the book comes next (89-107), as Verdoner untangles Eusebius’s carefully inflected self-descriptions as “I” or “we” (the latter sometimes including Christians from centuries before Eusebius, sometimes including Eusebius’s readers ) and as an exceptionally book-smart savant. ), Eusebius and the Making of Late Antique Literary Culture (Washington DC, 2012). 3.
