Constantine the Great stands as a watershed mark in Church History / European History. His life and rule marks the passing of the old Gods and the arrival center stage of the Church - legitimised and somewhat more respectable. Constantine himself was late to baptism, and though many of his actions were good for the Church, it is possible to understand them as possibly as politically motivated as they were spiritually motivated. The vision of the Chi Rho and the victory of Milvian Bridge, is perhaps also understood as a catastrophic military blunder by his Brother in Law Maxentius. He is one of the more complex people in history. https://blackswantheology.files.wordpress.com/2018/10/constantine.pdf The notes on the above link are the start of a presentation I am preparing on Constantine for a secular group I am part of. I know that some people are all positive, and some all negative, while I find myself feeling that Constantine is complex. I would in interested in what people think on the subject.
