Eusebius talking about Saint Papias

"(11)The same historian also gave other accounts, which he
said he added as received by him from unwritten tradition, likewise certain
strange parables by him from unwritten tradition, likewise certain strange
parables of our Lord, of his doctrine, and some other matters rather too
incredible. (12) In these he said there would be a millennium after the
resurrection and that there would be a corporeal reign of Christ on this very
earth which things he appeared to have imagined as if they were authorized by
the apostolic narrations, not understanding correctly those matters which they
propounded mystically in their representations. (13) He was very limited in his
comprehension, as is evident from his discourses; yet he was the cause why most
of the ecclesiastical writers, urging the antiquity of the man, were carried
away by a similar opinion, as, for instance, Irenaeus, or any other who adopted
such sentments."
