Detailing the same historical era that Socrates Scholasticus covered, Greek church historian Sozomen presents another characterization of this important time in history. Broken into nine parts, his account provides historians and theologians with corroboration of many people and events. Sozomen loosely arranges his work around the eras of Roman emporers, beginning with the conversion of Constantine and concluding with Valentinian III. Deepen your understanding of the fourth- and fifth-century church with accounts of monastic communities, early missionary activities, church councils, and the lives and deaths of key figures.
