I think calling Eusebius severe anything is unfair. He had sympathies
for the Arian side, and his subordinationism is everywhere apparent, but
he was also friendly to the Athanasian side, and he approved of the
Nicene formulation. I would call him a true moderate who stood between
extreme positions, and so a good example of what might have been the
fourth century middle ground.
