Der Kaiser und sein Gott: Das Christentum im Denken und in der Religionspolitik Konstantins des Großen

 book: Der Kaiser und sein Gott
Klaus M. Girardet
Volume 27 in the series Millennium-Studien / Millennium Studies

In his reconstruction of the process and motivation of Constantine’s adoption of Christianity, the author proposes a number of new individual aspects. He commences with an analysis of the earliest testimonials by the Emperor himself after his conversion, his massive moral and material support for the Christian clergy and ecclesiastic communities, and Constantine’s role as the first ruler of all Christendom up to his death in 337. Finally, it is shown that the Emperor wanted to suppress non-Christian religions and make Christianity the sole religion of the Empire and all humanity.
