Product Description

In his new book, Paul Stephenson provides a fascinating survey of the life and legacy of one of the most influential Roman emperors that ever lived. After receiving the vision of the Chi Rhoin the heavens, Constantine had a cross inscribed on the shields of all his soldiers, and quickly pursued and drove his rivals into the Tiber river, claiming the imperial capital city of Rome for himself. With this victory Constantine united the western and eastern halves of the Roman Empire, founded the new capital city of Constantinople, and legalized Christianity so that its adherents would no longer face persecution.
Stephenson offers a nuanced and deeply satisfying account of a man whose cultural and spiritual renewal of the Roman Empire gave birth to the idea of a unified Christian Europe underpinned by a commitment to religious tolerance.
