Abstract In spite of the widespread acceptance of D. S. Wallace-Hadrill’s argument that the fragments attributed to a Commentary on Luke by Eusebius of Caesarea actually derive from the lost tenth book of his General Elementary Introduction, there is insufficient reason to adopt this thesis. Based upon a comparison of the proportions, scope, and contents of what remains of the two works, I argue for their distinction from each other—a conclusion that should have important ramifications for our appreciation of Eusebius’ thought and work.
