I am currently in the process of reading the History of the Church by Eusebius. So far it has been extremely interesting and I can’t seem to put it down. However, there are some confusing elements in it. Such as Eusebius constantly talks about James the Righteous being the brother of the Lord, and Jesus writing a letter to a king in Edessa, I believe. He also makes it seem like no one believed St. Peter to be the first Bishop of Rome and claims that Linus was the first.
If anyone could clear some of this stuff up, it would be most helpful. I’m certainly taking what he says with a grain of salt because he was considered by some to be infected with Arianism.
Comments, opinions, etc. are welcome and encouraged.
