The Christianity of Constantine the Great
This text assumes that Eusebius' story of Constantine's conversion was fiction or a mistake, based upon the Emperor's own story of how God told him to make his army's standard. This study suggests that Constantine's Christianity was of more normal and earlier origins than the miracle of AD 312.
