      The only one I know of is Paul Maier's translation of Eusebius' Ecclesiastical History (1999). It has brief notes throughout and may be the closest thing to a 'verse-by-verse' commentary. It's not what you'd call a 'critical' commentary though.

      These might be the closest thing:

      Barnes, Timothy D., Constantine and Eusebius (1981)

      Grant, Robert McQueen, Eusebius as Church Historian (1980)

      These are good too, but narrower in focus:

      Carriker, Andrew James, The Library of Eusebius of Caesarea (2003)

      Kofsky, Aryeh, Eusebius of Caesarea Against Paganism (2000)

      Older works in English that might still be useful include:

      Lawlor, H. J., Eusebiana: Essays on the Ecclesiastical History of Eusebius (1912)

      Stevenson, J., Studies in Eusebius (1929)

      And Averil Cameron and Stuart G. Hall's commentary on Eusebius' Life of Constantine (1999) is excellent, though not dealing with the Ecclesiastical History.

      For a fuller bibliography on Eusebius you might look at:


      or Roger Pearse's page (which I suspect you already have).

      Subject: [XTalk] Commentary on Eusebius?

      Has anyone ever produced a commentary on the Ecclesiastical History of
      Eusebius? Short of that, can any suggest a book with many notes on the
      subject of that work?
