|The Arians were less gentle with Eusebius than he with them|
|Eusebius in exile|
At length, Julian the Apostate came to the throne and reversed the exile of orthodox bishops. I'm not a big fan of Julian, but this order suggests I ought to know more about him. Eusebius took the long road home, trying to heal the breaches in the Church all along the way. He was a big advocate of re-admitting those who embraced Arianism -- forgive-and-forget style Christianity. Once home, he put in about eight more years as bishop, fighting Arianism and re-affirming the Incarnation, right up until he died at age 88 in 371.
