The Church History of Rufinus of Aquileia, Books 10 and 11 Press Reviews
'...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 *
