The name Eusebius comes from the great church historian and bishop who is commonly called Eusebius of Caesarea.

As a young man in Caesarea he was taught by Pamphilus who had established a school of theology and a large library there. In 314 Eusebius was consecrated Bishop of Caesarea. He was a friend of Constantine who was the first Roman emperor to become a christian. Eusebius with Emperor Constantine presided over the Council of Nicaea in the year A.D. 325. Eusebius is most generally known as the author of THE ECCLESIASTICAL HISTORY which was a history of Christianity upto his own time.
