Encyclopedia > Eusebius of Alexandria

Eusebius of Alexandria, is an author to whom certain extant homilies are attributed.

These homilies enjoyed some renown in the Eastern Church in the sixth and seventh centuries. Their homiletical merit does not rise above mediocrity, and nothing is known of the author. In all events, he was not a patriarch of Alexandria, as is affirmed in as early biography (MPG, lxxxvi. 1, pp. 297-310), written by one Johannes, a notary, and stating that Eusebius was called by Cyril to be his successor in the episcopate. The discourses belong probably to the fifth or sixth century, and possibly originated in Alexandria. They deal with the life of the Lord and with questions of ecclesiastical life and practise, which they resolve in a monastic-ascetic way. Their literary character is not quite clear; while most of them are adapted for public delivery, not a few bear the character of ecclesiastical pronouncements. They are printed in MPG, lxxxvi. 1, pp. 287-482, 509-536, except four included among Chrysostom's works. The fragments preserved in the so-called Sacra parallela are to be found in K. Hall's Fragmente vornicänischer Kirchenväter (T U, new series, v. 2, Leipzig, 1899), pp. 314-332. A homily concerning the observance of Sunday is attributed by Zahn to Eusebius of Emesa.

Note that Eusebius of Alexandria is not the well-known historian of the Christian church, who is Eusebius of Caesarea.

Eusebius of Vercelli - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (767 words)
He was a lector in Rome before he went to Vercelle, the present Vercelli, and when the bishop died in 340 Eusebius was acclaimed bishop of that city by the clergy and the people and received episcopal consecration at the hands of Pope Julius I on 15 December.
In 354(?), Pope Liberius sent Eusebius and Bishop Lucifer of Cagliari to the Emperor Constantius II at Arles in Gaul, for the purpose of inducing him to convoke a council expected to end the dissentions between the Arian and the Trinitarian Christians.
At first Eusebius refused to attend it because he foresaw that the Arian bishops, with the Emperor's support, would not accept the decrees of the Council of Nicaea and would vote to condemn St. Athanasius.
