`This volume provides a fine introduction to the Life of Constantine in a format that is user-friendly both with regard to organization of content and graphic design ... The commentary helpfully assesses the historicity of Eusebius' accounts of specific events and how certain themes in the text serve the various literary purposes of the work. The book is a goldmine of bibliographical sources on particular topics in the Vita, for example, on Constantine's building programs in Jerusalem and elsewhere.' Journal of Early Christian Studies, 2001
