In 312 CE, Constantine - one of four emperors ruling a divided empire - marched on Rome to establish control of the western empire. On the eve of the decisive battle he saw a vision which led him to convert to Christianity. Stephenson's biography uses literary, artistic, numismatic and archaeological evidence to examine the religious background of Constantine's conversion and the life and legacy of a seminal figure in the political and cultural history of the West.
