Product Description

Here is the first-ever English translation of the ancient Greek Onomasticon by Eusebius of Caesarea, written in the early 4th century A.D. Edited and introduced by Joan E. Taylor, this translation of Eusebiusí Onomasticon, prepared for the first time in English by G. S. P. Freeman-Grenville, follows the edition of Erich Klostermann. Presented in parallel with Jerome's Latin rendering of the same work, known as the Liber Locorum, The Onomasticon by Eusebius of Caesarea provides an alphabetical listing of place names mentioned in the Bible and identified by the author with contemporary sites. By comparing the two works we can see how Christian Palestine developed between the early 320s and the late 380s. Accompanied by maps and indexes, this book is an indispensable tool for students and scholars alike.
