Notes Many scholars doubt the accuracy of this work’s attribution to Eusebius. The theological language, they claim, is too advanced for Eusebius or the date at which he would have authored the work. These scholars, therefore, suggest a later date and an unknown author familiar with the theological developments of the later fourth century; nevertheless, other scholars point out the lack of definitive argument against Eusebius’ authorship.
