This is Caillau's Latin edition of Eusebius's works. The first book contains volumes 1-2 and prior to Eusebius's works, Caillau has included selections from Alexander of Alexandria and Eusthathius of Antioch. After these brief sections, the first book consists of Eusebius's controversial writings with Marcellus, as well as a variety of theological treatises. The first book ends with part of his On the Preparation for the Gospel. The second book begins with the latter part of the same work and then continues on with Eusebius's Demonstration of the Gospel. The third book consists solely of Eusebius's commentary on the Psalms. The fourth book consists of orations, scriptural and theological works, and Eusebius's most famous work, the Life of Constantine. Anyone looking to own Eusebius's body of work in Latin will benefit from Caillau's editorial work, which is surpassed only by Migne's.
