Summary

Jonathan Phillips' exploration of early Christian history concludes as he recounts how Constantine the Great's martial victory over his rival Maxentius made him Emperor. As the Roman dominions continued to expand, the new ruler saw spreading the Christian faith as the key to maintaining unity in his empire. As a result, he convened the pivotal council of Nicea, during which principles of worship were established that still define the Church to this day.
