    Eusebius (c. AD 260-c. 340), Greek ecclesiastical historian, is known as the father of church history. "The apologetic writings of Eusebius are the Praeparatio Evangelica [...] and the Demonstratio Evangelica [...]. They are both, but especially the former, a rich storehouse of information on antiquity, particularly on the philosophy and religion of the Greeks" (Seyffert. Dictionary of Classical Antiquities).
