BRIEF HISTORY
OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH




 

THE CONTENT OF CHURCH HISTORY

Church history must contain the succession from the holy apostles, together with the times that have elapsed from our Saviour's day down to our own. It must also contain the important things that are said to have been accomplished in the history of the Church. Church history must enumerate all those who took a prominent place in the most famous communities, either through their preaching or their writings.

It must also deal with the names of those who, through love of innovation and novelty, fell into the most grievous error, and proclaimed themselves as introducers of knowledge, falsely so-called, thus, like ravenous wolves cruelly ravaging the flock of Christ.

Church history must narrate how the Jewish nation and other heathen nations went against this religion; and how great men and women endured death and torture in the conflict to witness to the truth of their belief.

Eusebius of Caesarea "Ecclesiastical History"
