Sébastien Morlet: Eusèbe le grammairien. A propos des Questions évangéliques. Eusebius the grammarian. A note on the Quaestiones evangelicae.

A stricking and previously unnoticed parallel between Eusebius' Quaestiones evangelicae and a scholion on Pindar shows the importance of the grammatical (more than rhetorical) approach in this work. Eusebius obviously uses greek grammatikê as a tool to solve textual problems. This observation could lead to new hypotheses concerning his education and culture, and new evaluations of the literal exegesis in his works.
