I’m still going through piles of photocopies, turning them into PDF’s and throwing the paper copies out. Occasionally I’m finding treasures. I had forgotten that I paid the rare books room at Cambridge University Library 16.51 GBP — about $25 — to make a copy of the latest (1842!) edition of Eusebius of Caesarea’s Eclogae Propheticae.
This curious work is three books of a now lost work, the General Elementary Introduction to Christianity, originally in 10 books. The eclogae is books 6-9, found in a Vienna manuscript, and consisting mainly of extracts from the Septuagint Old Testament prophesying Christ, and for some reason always known as Eclogae Propheticae. A few other scraps of the General Elementary Introduction exist; I suspect these will be fragments from catenas.
Gaisford’s edition is a little book, with a Latin introduction and no translation (drat the man). I’ve created a PDF, and uploaded it to the web at Archive.org, here. It’s about 28mb in size, although not searchable — I don’t have ancient Greek OCR capabilities!
There has never been a translation of this work into English. I am advised, tho, that such a translation would be very easy to make. I know of at least one person working on Porphyry who has translated a large chunk of it for his own purposes, and may complete the work. I seem to recall that someone else also has a projected translation.
If nothing emerges in a year or two, I may commission one.
