The CHURCH HISTORIANS.
Eusebius so far exhausted the materials for the earlier history of the Church that his successors did not venture upon the same ground. Socrates, Sozomen, and Theodoret, the three historians next in rank to Eusebius, and who all wrote about A. D. 350, began their works where his history left off. Of the last of these, as well as of the Father of Church History himself, we have already spoken. In addition to the authors given below may be named Philip of Side, a friend of Chrysostom, who wrote a History of Christianity in thirty-six books, the loss of which has been no great calamity to the world; Basil, of Cilicia, who wrote three books of Ecclesiastical History, now lost; and Theodoras the Reader, who made a summary of Socrates, Sozomen, and Theodoret, which he continued in two books, also lost.
