Description

Constantine the Great is a fascinating and in depth historical examination of the reorganisation of the Empire after its catastrophic fall, and the subsequent triumph of the Christian Church.

What he does assert, though, is that under Constantine’s auspices, one of the most momentous upheavals in history took place.

A Note From the Publisher

John B.
