Volume 3 of 4. Part 1 of 2. Libri I-IX anglice redditi. 吾1?2伪󏵙?位1蝟1?2 ? 衔肯伪衔毕蝟?衔 ('Preparation for the Gospel'), commonly known by its Latin title Praeparatio evangelica, is a work by Eusebius which attempts to prove the excellence of Christianity over pagan religions and philosophies. The Praeparatio consists of fifteen books which have been completely preserved. This translation by Edwin Hamilton Gifford includes introductory information in Latin and translations in Greek and English. Eusebius considered it an introduction to Christianity for pagans. But its value for many later readers is more because Eusebius added information from historians and philosophers which was not recorded elsewhere.
