A day that I have long dreaded has arrived – the day on which I have to work out just what it cost to make the translation of Eusebius of Caesarea’s, Gospel Problems and Solutions. Why now? Well, it’s the end of the financial year. The company has been selling copies of the book for [...]

A couple of years ago I discussed a quotation from Eusebius’ Commentary on the Psalms. An incoming link alerts me to a discussion which gives a longer quotation, and a source for it. The source given is Moses Stuart’s Commentary on the Apocalypse (vol. 2, p.9, p.40; Andover: Allen, Morrill, Wardwell, 1845). But a quick [...]
Last night I spent hunched over a hot scanner, transforming a text book from paper into a PDF. My first reason for doing so is that it is simply more accessible in that format. The library charges $8 to borrow it, and lends it to me for a fortnight. That isn’t long enough to do [...]
A fresh — and kind – review has appeared of the text and translation of Eusebius of Caesarea’s Gospel problems and solutions (Quaestiones ad Stephanum et Marinum) which I published last year. It is by Michael F. Bird and can be found here at the Review of Biblical Literature site. (h/t here).
I learn that a new review of Eusebius, Gospel problems and solutions, tr. David Miller, Adam McCollum and Carol Downer, has appeared at the Review of Biblical Literature site here. Apparently another review will also appear sometime.
Yesterday I summarised, section by section, the content of chapter 1 (“Edessa”) of Walter Bauer’s Orthodoxy and Heresy, with a view to working out just what, in plain terms, his argument was. I shall do more on this next week, and reduce the book to a series of testable statements and propositions, which we may [...]
The Eusebius: Gospel Problems and Solutions book is still selling copies, which is pleasing. I put so much of myself into producing that book, and of course there was never any certainty of sales. This evening I received the monthly statements from Lightning Source (US and UK), which tells me how many copies were sold [...]
The first review of the Eusebius Gospel Problems and Solutions book by David Miller, Adam McCollum, Carol Downer and friends, edited by me, has appeared here at Bryn Mawr. It’s very kind and rather encouraging!
It has taken some time since I wrote this initial article, but I am finally in a position to say somewhat more. The Gospel problems and solutions by Eusebius was used by the compiler of a now lost Greek catena commentary. This catena was translated into Coptic (De Lagarde published it) and the Coptic into [...]
I don’t know why Italian booksellers are dishonest. But I have received precisely two orders for my book from them, and in both cases they did not feel any obligation to actually pay for the book. Thief of the week is Licosa.com. Licosa ordered a book from me at the start of November 2011. I sent [...]
