The Church History of Rufinus of Aquileia, Books 10 and 11


The Church History of Rufinus of Aquileia, Books 10 and 11 by Tyrannius Rufinus

Amidon offers the first English translation of Books 10 and 11 of Rufinus' Church History. Books 1-9 comprise a Latin translation of Eusebius' history. Books 10 and 11 are Rufinus' own continuation, covering the period 325-395. As the first Latin church history, this work exerted great influence over the subsequent scholarship of the Western Church.


'...deserves a warm welcome...' * The Expository Times * Father Amidon has provided a lively and accurate translation of Books 10 and 11 of the Church History ... The notes are scholarly and well-researched ... this is a handy and exceptionally well informed edition of a valuable ... contemporary record of the period from Nicaea to the death of Theodosius I. * The Expository Times * The translation is excellent-accurate, of course, but more: graceful, and rather colloquial. The translator has managed to avoid the stilted quality of many translations of works from this period....The notes to the translation are also excellent-very informative on historical and doctrinal matters. * Elizabeth Clark, Duke University * The translation reads well and the notes are outstanding; and the introduction provides a nice survey of scholarship on the History. There is also an up-to-date bibliography and index. All in all, a very useful and most welcome volume * Religious Studies Review *'
