    Constantine the Great (282-337) has been much mythologized and his image distorted since the work of his first biographer Eusebius. While the focus has often been on his conversion to Christianity, Potter examines this religious commitment in the wider context of the emperor's evolving conception of his role, his self-representation and the development of a strategy that enabled him to deal with both internal rebellion and external threats from Gauls and Persians.
