Conversion of Constantine

Constantine the Great (272–337 CE) was a Roman Empire who embraced Christianity and decriminalized its worship. Just before the Battle of Milvian Bridge, Constantine looked up at the sun and saw a cross of light and the words "In this sign, you will conquer." A year later, he released the Edict of Milan giving his subjects the freedom to follow whichever religion they felt was best. The following documents explore Constantine's conversion and the transition from Paganism to Christianity in the Roman Empire.
